Long Description:
This might not be the most beautiful beach around but it's nevertheless a beach. Advantages: it's quiet and relatively remote and there is a nice short hiking trail nearby. Avoid high tide times, as the available space on the beach almost vanishes. In the other hand, with low tide, one can walk quite a bit on the wet sand.

Expect no infrastructures whatsoever. Very popular for windsurfers.

This is not an open ocean beach, but it's not very different or very far from the Atlantic.

Provided coordinates are for the fine parking spot. You will need to drive on a dirt road to get there but at least there is always space available.
Type of beach: Natural

Location of beach: Seashore
