The extreme southern part of the beach is rather
narrow and mostly avoided by tourists in favour of the central and northern
parts but the sand here is firmer, (ideal for sand-castles).
The long beach is wide enough to give ample space for
sunbathers and is a delightful place to spend a few lazy hours under a beach
umbrella with the occasional plunge into the clear water to cool off. Mostly
the beach is safe for children and non-swimmers. However in places, which
vary according to recent weather conditions, the beach at the sea edge does
shelve rather quickly with soft sand making exit from the water difficult so
young children should be accompanied by an adult in those areas. Also after
storms or strong winds the sand sometimes moves along the beach exposing a
ridge of pebbles in places.
Spread at intervals along the whole beach are numerous
beach umbrella and sun bed enterprises, who are also responsible for emptying
the rubbish bins on their "patch of beach". These large blue bins are placed
about every 30 metres and so there is no excuse for untidy visitors to drop
