What a stunning coastline, untouched and beautiful, great place for a walk with the dog or just a walk on your own to clear those cobwebs.

Even though the weather wasn't very good, this was a beautiful place for a walk. The cliffs go all the way to fine sandy or water, depending where you walk. It's a bit of a walk down from the car-park. I have posted photos.

You must take a walk to the Coast Watch building at the Worms Head. A chat with the watchers there is most rewarding and sign in the visitors book tooi

Breathtaking scenery and beaches! Beware, some beaches can be a bot of a clamber down to and a steep climb back up! Not many public toilets around so make sure you prepare yourself!!!
