It's a nice beach, not the best i've been to in the area but if you go on a sunny day it's a great place to spend some time.

The approach to the beach is very run down with a number of derilict buildings & Pontins Camp which looked neglected. Aloso somewhat expensive to prk on the beach with no facilities.
