One of very few beaches in the area that are dog freindly all year round with no restrictions, let's hope it stays that way . no real parking so it is a bit of a walk .and quite a steep climb back up to whatever remote place you did manage to park.

Came across this beach whilst walking part of the South West Coastal path. It is lovely and unspoilt. It is definitely worth a visit.

The main beach which is good for dog walking all year round. Beautiful expanse of perfect white sand on the estuary.

It's a brilliant beach for walking / swimming but has some VERY strong rip-tides. So any inflatables are banned

Just so much sand! And great for the kites, as the wind whips round there! Our son could run for miles and not bump into anything! Definitely worth a walk.

Beautiful, what more can I say! Beautiful sandy beach, even in November! We visited whilst walking the South coast walk from St Ives. We couldn't find anywhere to eat or drink, but to be fair didn't look particularly hard.

I love this beach so much. A huge expanse of sand, beautiful views whatever the weather and the most fabulous patterns in the sand made by the ebbing tide. And there is never many people there :)
