Well worth to spend a whole day or two there enjoying some long or short walks, great vistas, beaches, bays, ocean waves rolling in, different landscapes from meadows to laughs! Don’t miss it!

We started our walk at the church and walked to the left. The views of the sea and beyond are just beautiful. Our children loved the adventure of finding berries, wildlife, stones and shells. A beautiful afternoon.

An absolutely beautiful place. Gently sloping beach for toddlers to paddle. Clean toilets. Plenty of parking. Small simple playground. Lovely walks of different lengths and steepnesses. Be warned though, there is no shelter when the skies open!
