We had coffee, walked along the beach for a good while and it is stunning. We then asked for information on a good local pub from staff and were given good friendly information and directions.

Lovely walk around the lake or up to the beach road a visitors centre with little cafe and small shop. Great play area and plenty for the children to run or walk off some energy.
