The beach has been awarded a European Blue Flag for cleanliness and its facilities. Ramps give access for wheelchairs and pushchairs, and a concrete path runs along the rear of the sands. The beach itself is a mixture of sand and shingle.
There is safe bathing in the bay, with lifeguards operating a flag system in the summer months. A wide variety of water sports is available.
In July and August small sections of the beach may be cordoned off to protect turtles' nests.
