Lovely beach in the wonderful village of Burgau. Great beach bar, and you can hire paddleboards / kayaks / snorkelling gear, sunbeds etc. Parking quite tricky to find but is free around the streets.

Lovely little beach with all necessary amenities close by. We had a lovely few hours there on a clean life guarded beach. The sea was cool but a little on the rough side but still enjoyable on a REALLY hot day. Recommended visit

In May this was a lovely quiet beach, with families enjoying the afternoon and evening together. Clean sand and sheltered bay. Excellent beech bar and restaurant. A steep climb from the beach up the ramps formerly used by fishing boats.
