Fantastic scenery, lovely beach This was hard for us to get to. I think it could be signposted better, especially if coming in from the west. Once there we parked up £3.50. We had the rest of the day to explore. Time it right and you can walk across at low tide (2 hours either side of low tide is... More

Lovely place - fabulous views, peaceful, calm and great walks. Britain can beat all of our foreign counterparts when the weather is good.

Slow paced and full of treasure. If you go slow enough you become completely relaxed and enjoy everything this wonderful area has to offer. My advise is, with the coast on your left hand side, drive and keep turning left. Follow every road to the sea. so many hidden gems!

If you like walking try the coast path - we had fun dipping in and out of it rather than going all the way round. Beautiful scenery, lots of wildlife, and lots of tiny cafes to grab a drink at.
