  • While we were here end of April, the beach was wonderful to just stroll. It is very long and sill be fabulous come the summer months.  more »
  • We walked the beach briefly on a rainy cold day in September. It was beautiful and would definitely love to go back on a hot sunny summer day!  more »
  • We were astounded by the beautiful beaches. The red sand and the dunes. Walked barefoot along the beach. The photos don't do it justice. The sand is deep red.  more »
