I use to come here all of the time - from 1990 onwards. That ghastly modern montrosity of a development has ruined the beach and now surfers have to compete with touristy droves of the wealthy fish and chip brigade. But then I guess Cornwall need the pounds. I visited this beach several times in the last year and found it soulless. Shame.

Great sand, clean, but lots of surfers!! Still showing signs of storm damage. Nice restaurant,cafe and bar and lots of space for families. Lifeguards in attendance and the atmosphere was fun and lively
