A beautiful little secluded harbour and beach. Was unbeatable on a glorious summer's day. Will definitely go back there again when in the area.

Visited here after reading other reviews. They're right it's lovely and well worth the walk down (it's not that steep unless you live in the fens). The car park is small so advisable to get here early. A previous reviewer is also right about rubbish...More

Lovely hidden beach and harbour. Well worth a walk down too. It is beautiful and peaceful. Exciting for the kids as you access it via a tunnel through the cliff.
