I often walk on Marsden Beach early in the morning with my dog and have seen it become more and more destroyed and neglected in recent years. The derelict lifeguard/first aid station is a complete wreck and the metal shuttering has been broken away by vandals who light fires and make a general mess around the area. The concrete steps onto the beach are breaking up and have been semi-sealed off by rusting metal barriers that add to the general downtrodden look. The beach itself is a small curving bay with a lovely outlook accessed by a long steep set of sloping concrete steps running from the main Coast Road at the top, all the way down to the bottom of the cliffs. The beach shares its outlook with the Grotto Pub which has a lift shaft from the car park down to the terrace actually right on the beach facing Marsden Rock, a well known cormorant colony and could be a real tourist attraction but for the neglect. Long overdue a tidy up but the fact that there is no development here is also part of the attraction.
