The coast was rocky and the sea only accessible safely in a few places, not ideal for children or anyone with limited mobility although a pool on site was not crowded, possibly because it was quite cold in September . You definitely need a car to explore the area and find more accessible beaches as well as stock up on food and drink. Coastal walks were beautiful.
