Not ideal for swimming in winter, because of the regular pounding shore break that creates a strong undertow; this beach is nevertheless good for taking in some sun. During the summer months, the sea is almost always smooth and safe. Ask lifeguards about conditions before going in, especially between October and May.
To the left is Cannons, an expert local surf break. Facilities include restrooms, outdoor showers, picnic tables and a pavilion. Overnight camping is allowed. Secure permits in advance.
