“Well worth a visit. Go there to walk the dogs (9-11am and 3-5pm). They are all very nice and beautiful dogs that often have had some rather bad experience. Many dogs end up adopted and flying to Europe and the US. The beach dog-walk is nice - you will come across 2/3 beaches that are quite secluded.”
