Gets deep further out, but the bottom is still visible. There are two nets to keep beach people away from the open water, they are extremely effective as no one goes out. Both nets can be seen if you zoom in closest, one is to the right of the marker and one is far to the left of it. Neither pose a risk to windsurfing or kitesurfing as they are both far apart.

Medium beach stretches to the right of the marker and there is a small rigging/launching place right where the marker is. There are a couple of rocks in the ankle shallow water, but none further out.
