The beach is generally clean and well kept in spite of how busy it gets (which is veeery busy on a hot summer day). There are surf schools, bars, and restaurants all along the beach as well, so you can easily spend the whole day there, just beware it will get cramped when the tide comes in and pushes everyone together.
