Review of St. James Beach

St. James Beach

Reviewed 23 March 2014

This is a cosy little beach, with just enough rocks to offer both ways to a day at the seaside. You can sit on the rocks with your feet in the seawater, you can play and splash in the water and of course sunbathe on the sand.

The train track is rigt next to the beach. Although elevated, it is quite intimidating to see it approach and pass by with a roar.

This beach is a photographer's dream. The colorful beach houses and tidal pool are quite picturesque. This is a great place to swim safely in the ocean (tidal pool) or for young children. The sandy part of the beach isn't very big so I don't recommend it for serious tanners.

Not a lot you can say that hasn't already been said, the tidal pool take you back to your childhood and the brightly coloured beach huts are like something from an age gone by.

I just love this place which seems still to look the same as in the early 1900's. So full of character.
