Fantastic beach & dunes. Nice flat firm sands for children to play ball games and a resident ice cream van - what more could you need?! Dog friendly.

Park on the beach and walk the sand dunes! Lovely sandy beaches, visitor centre. Look out for lots of different wildlife. Have to pay to park only.

Always came here as a kid, loved running in the dunes, flying our kites, now bring my child here, great place to have a ramble about and explore. Love the views and the end result is the beautiful sea, what more could you ask for
