This wonderful location is only spoiled by the car parking arrangements and the rather expensive and over hyped beachfront restaurant. As part of the SW Coast Path walk it is an outstanding stretch of sand and cliffs.

We used to visit this place and stay at The Rosemere Hotel for many years until the developers moved in. Great for surfu=ing but the atmosphere is now more Benidorm!

Had not realised quite how extensive the beach was with golden sands and great surf when we were there. Lots of activity including wind surfing which can be spectacular

This is a beach that holds many events. They sometimes hold polo matches, kite surfing etc. It is a more exposed beach so be careful of the tidal currents.

We love spending time on this beach with our daughter on our holidays down in Cornwall. We love the Beach Hut and the little surf shop next to it! Ideal! Nice and chilled out for all ages.
