Only the highest of tides (usually a Spring tide) covers all of the sand and at low tide the sea retreats approximately 300 metres to open up an enormous expanse of beach. South facing, the beach is in full sun along virtually its entire length from sunrise to sunset.
The bay is very sheltered from prevailing westerlies and easterlies. It has soft, golden sand along virtually the entire length of the beach.
