  • It is an outstanding point for relaxing and surfing in a long time. Because the wind also exchanges, the surface is beautiful and easy to do. The high tide is next to the embankment, and the low tide is on the left side, and the sole of the foot is pressed and it can walk only quite slowly because it is full of boulders at the boundary. Many of the children come to the beach with their families and enjoy themselves. There aren't many people who get rattled.
