One of the few sandy beaches in the SE. South facing and nice view of the white cliffs. Please keep it tidy, people, by picking up dog mess and rubbish!

My better half and I have enjoyed a lovely walk in this area, capturing beautiful shots of a sunrise and the interesting views, buildings and people along the way. Highly recommended to put some pink into your cheeks :)
