A lovely little spot to stop and have a coffee or picnic. Lovely views, great for photographs and very peaceful. Quite small but worth a visit.

Found this by chance, thinking it was just a lay-by but off the lay-by is a narrow track which goes down to the waters edge. The tide was out when we were there but we sat and watched the birds wadding in the pools and...More
