'Sunshine 247365', as featured in the Guardian and the Daily Mail Beach Sun Retreat uniquely offers the 'perfect beach and summer holiday' with guaranteed sunbathing 365 days a year!

A unique place to stay, right beside fabulous sandy beach which was empty even when weather was good. Could play cricket and build sandcastles all day. When the sun was not shinning could still catch the rays in the sun room, while the kids watched 3d films in the cinema! more
