A wonderful sandy beach surrounded by cliffs and beautiful trees. This is an amazing beach and a favourite with dog walkers. Beautiful throughout the year.

Surprisingly great coffee at the Beach Hut and very pleasant women serving. Super beach for children as they can run any excess energy off, play football without disturbing others and beach hunt for shells, pretty stones etc. Well worth a visit

Parking is £2 and it's at the top of a steep concrete path down to the beach - difficult to walk down if you're not steady on your feet or with a pushchair. Very steep coming back up. But only about 200 yards from the beach... More
