This beach is our usual base, which was fine until we had a baby, and had to push the pram up the hill! This clearly isn't something that can be rectified, so i am not complaining.... unlike a couple near us who kept asking why they couldn't but an escalator in?... Fools!!

I go to this beach more than any others and it is always a fun experience! A steep hill or a lot of steps are the only ways of getting down there unless you walk along the beaches when the tide is out. But they're no worry for an able bodied person. There are toilets down there as well as... More

The beach is at the bottom of cliffs and access can be obtained either by steps or roadway, at the bottom there are apartments and 'day cabins' which must be lovely in the summer as well as a beach café. It was fun to watch the Surfers but they must all be mad as the sea was bitterly cold, the... More

A private beach - who can 'BUY' a beach!!! A wet and pebbly beach compared to smooth Lusty Glaze, Great Western, Fistral, Crantock and Towan. No dogs allowed either.

Great little beach to catch some waves and chill, without anyone seeming to care about what you're doing. I went body boarding for the first time here with my partner and it was amazing.
