Stayed here as clachtoll was shut. Beach is stunning. Campsite is ok. Night we stayed was near 50 mile hour winds...dont think many slept 😅. Toilets are ok as are showers but its bit chilly..no heating. Gets a FAIR rating

Went to the Bay to see the sunset. The water is a glorious turquoise and both it and the sand are very clean. There is the option for walks around the area and there are toilets for visitor use.

What an absolute wonderful gem of a place. I had seen so many pictures online but none of them do the justice of actually being there. Just visit I say.
