This was within walking distance of our hotel. It is a lovely tranquil place with a sandy beach and pretty beach huts. There is a cafe right by the beach and toilets also.

Fantastic for children to explore the shallow rockpools, tide tends to be out early afternoon. Dogs are allowed on bottom beach area but not the top beach next to the cafe.

Lovely pebbley beach, with some sandy areas too. Quiet area from main tourist beaches. Beautifully clean area. Has a lovely cafe and shop that sells all your beach necessities. Beach huts available to hire too. Definitely a lovely beach for families.
