There are actually three little roads that lead to the beach: one at the north end, one in the middle and one further south. We'll assume that you drove the middle route and that you now find yourself standing on the rocky point used as a car-park which separates the beach into a northern half and a southern half. There's a dilapidated old fisherman's house, built of wood and stone, perched precipitously on the point.

Then you come to a big dune at the north end of the beach. When you reach the end, turn around and head south again, trying to avoid colliding with the other beach-goers.

So now, just head back north, heading uphill along the cliffs, following the same rocky, beautiful, amazing way that you came.
