If you have a dog, you are welcome to bring your furry friend there (off-leash). Another popular activity is beach combing – each tide or storm brings new treasures for you to find.
A big number of sea turtles use this beach for nesting and if you’re lucky, you can even see how little hatchlings make their way from the nest to the ocean.
