Wheelchair accessible.

The toilet facilities are open all year round. Emptying toilets from motorhomes and caravans is not permitted.

Rest area with toilet facilities and jetty.

The stone jetty extends 65 metres from the beach across the tidal shore and into the water.

In addition to being in itself a nice place to walk or rest, the jetty provides protection from winds from the east, it makes it easy to get into and out of boats and kayaks, and it enables people to walk dry-shod into deep waters for activities that so require.

The rest area has been given a modern service building and a spacious car park. The establishment of the new rest area makes the place an attractive place for swimming, fishing and picnics for locals as well as for travelling visitors.
