Besides having a dedicated area for bathing in the clean and calm waters of the river Deza, it also, has parking for over 40 cars and picnic tables so you can eat at the foot of the beach.

A short path has also been clearly signposted for those who wish to enjoy the scenery on a leisurely walk through the parish.
