  • Particularly beautiful beach for surfers and an exceptional setting for walks on the beach.

  • Large sandy beach with nice waves in rolls. In fact we saw surfers who I think are feasted given the number of sets of waves and its rolls to cut sulphur. Clear water and a precious white foam. In the month of October, between wild Beach, hilly side and white houses scattered here and there, this landscape has a side Irish. It's wonderful.

  • It can be seen from the site of the edge of the tidal wave. It's a beautiful beach of white sand, often windswept. Its name is due to the numerous boats washed up on this beach.
