An excellent sandy beach, where you can watch some amazing surfers working out in the huge waves. A great place for a picnic when the weather is right.

We visited when the waves were very high and the wind was blowing strong. We counted 39 brave ? surfers riding the waves and they seemed to be enjoying themselves

Great beach for bodyboarding and surfing!! Fab waves and life guards always keeping a close eye on you!

Only down side is that it is quite a shaley beach/coarse sand with some big pebbles so not as nice underfoot as say Crantock beach. Despite this you struggle to get a spot on this beach in the summer!!

This lovely beach has been very damaged by the recent storms. Lots of sand has been pushed off what used to be a golden beach. It's a shame but as travellers we should continue to support places like this and not mark them down due to damage they can't help

Visit and help bring it back to what it was
