There is plenty of sand obviously and some hotels do put out deckchairs, but there is a fair amount of refuse and you just don't see many people swimming here.
That's not to say it isn't a pretty beach though. The sunsets can be fabulous and at low tide the entire seaweed industry will be laid out for you to observe. Fascinating — and very photogenic. You cannot swim here at low tide.
Note that much of the immediate off-beach area here is used for drying seaweed and it has a very distinct, well, seaweedy smell. You get used to it after a while, but some find it gag-worthy.
