we restored our soul by escaping the madness and coming to this beach. an absolutely lovely spot to chill on the beach, have the kids make sandcastles (while the tide is out) and fly kits.

Easy parking (£1 per hour) which is next to the beach. Do take coins for the ticket machine, which is pay on exit. Beach is clean and if you're feeling energised, great walks in both directions along the coast. A super cafe serves a very...More

I don't think some people realise that car park, beach and toilets are all privately owned so the upkeep is down to us! so car park charges go towards the up keep of our grounds! So if you park in road outside unless you use...More

Coming down to the area for a week with our dogs, first week in April 2017. What are your opening hours now Spring finally on its way, and can the car park be seen from the cafe, as we have 4 dogs and once tired we leave them sleep in the van whilst we grab a cuppa. Like to keep an eye on them though! Regards Elaine & Phil
