Sunshine on the sea

There isn't a huge beach here but the views and expanse of beautiful torquise sea more than make up for it.

Water was very clear the day we went. A few rocks which most probably disappeared at high tide. No amenities where we were but maybe further up.

After a lovely cream tea we took the Cable car down to the beach. Works being carried out, but still a lovely peaceful area for everyone to enjoy. A nice walk along the beach is a must

Definitely a place to visit. Not much sand, but some lovely photogenic rocks. Check the tide tables, as when tide is in, there is virtually no beach. Nice looking cafe but didn't sample as staying at the Osborne Hotel right nearby.
