I stayed at the Marina Hotel and had a lovely view of the beach, with Fair Head in the background. Walked this beach a few times during my stay. Nice beach, great views.

We love this beach. We took a 2.5 year old and he loved it. It's clean and safe for children. Lots of things to do and a great park too.
