Visited in October. Beautiful views over the channel and great for dog walking. Nice and quiet and you can walk for a long way around the cliff.

Cool place to visit, we could've walk around for hours, there were lots of plaes around to explore, I bet we haven't found all :) And the coast has one of the greatest tides in the world

We have just spent the last two nights here. The staff are very friendly and helpful; the food was excellent and the surrounding area stunning. Our puppy had a lovely time too.

Miles of fine sand suitable for a long walk along the sea when the sun is out. Make sure you get a local map from the Botany Bay hotel restaurant on the top first. There are actually quite a few local attractions around in the area.

This is a lovely sandy beach right underneath the cliffs. There were no facilities that I found and the only toilets were closed. There is a big hotel so I am sure you could use that toilet if you purchased a drink.

The water is so clear here and the sandy beach is very clean. I love the white cliffs and tall standing rocks, absolutley loved this location and its peacefullness and much different scenery

Just a lovely setting, with views of the cliffs, the sea, and the sky. Enjoyed an early dinner of delicious beer-battered cod with chips and mushy peas. The service was attentive and unobtrusive.

Beautiful clean beach and clean water, amazing scenery. I would recommend this place to anyone who just wants to visit a non commercialised beach.
