This isn't the prettiest beach to look at, but it's a watersports-person's wet dream. It stretches for four miles of fine, brown sandy perfection – gently shelving, soft bottom sandy floored ocean on one side, craggy cliffs on the other. Then just add the wind and it's perfection for surfers, windsurfers and kitesurfers – but not too comfortable on the beach if you're into sand bathing – a bit too much like being Lawrence of Arabia in a sand storm.

The sea's soft bottom means it's a good place for learning to surf etc., as well as to hone your skills, but the currents and tide can be unpredictable so it's safer to go out in pairs or groups with some more experienced watersports-people.
