We enjoying visiting this, our local beach, in summer. It is clean and there are lifeguards and flags so I feel safer going in the water than at unmanned beaches. Unfortunately in winter it is sometimes less clean, and there are sometimes people with dogs drinking and swearing, which is not desirable with young children.

Stayed just off the beach. Great sand but a few rocky bits at low tide. Paddlers need to watch where they go! Easy access and parking.

The beach is brilliant in summer and during the winter I have seen wind surfers kite surfers and normal surfers it's a shame that the council don do more to promote the beach.
