A beautiful beach, flanked by mountains. It's much nicer than the East Beach and is way quieter, just a few dog walkers and you. The views are simply breathtaking and if you climb the Orme a little it just gets better. My new favourite beach!

Street parking was readily available and the easily accessible paved promenade had lovely sea views. Access for dogs is restricted on the main section of sandy beach for five months from May through September and bins are provided.

The West shore is always referred to as the quieter beach but in many ways is the better of the two bays as when the tide is down it has a beautiful sandy beach and very shallow for bathing. There is plenty free parking but...More

You have the answers above which are mostly right. You can't walk your dog on the beach during the Summer months but should be OK the rest of the year. The Council are looking at this with a view to stop dogs on the beach... More
