A very small pier with the usual machines and not much else. There are still 2p machines which is nice for children and families could spend about an hour here.

Great place for the kids with many slots and coin roll type games to keep them amused. A few adult slots and some food stalls.

Great place to visit to break up your day on the beach. Machines aren't expensive and you get a good chance at winning some prizes.

Spent an hour or so on the pier playing on the various 2p machines. Very little chance of winning anything but kept us entertained whilst it rained outside. Lots of other arcade and fruit machines along with some fairground style attractions at the very end of the pier. Quite busy and narrow pathways throughout making buggy / wheelchair access tricky...

The pier has a lot of attractions for small children unfortunately when I visited most were broken and under repair. The arcade has the usual array of grabber machines and coin dozers none of which I saw anybody win more than a couple of pence on. The dozers seem to have a second angled plate that makes it very difficult... More

The Pier is surrounded by a lovely beach and is about 200 meters long. About two thirds of the pier is covered with an indoor amusement arcade, which has a wide variety of games to play. The remainder of the pier has the usual doughnut, coffee and sweet stalls, including a pretty good café on the left of the pier... More

If you have fond memories of the great holiday piers of yore, this is something of a damp squib. It's short, full of slots and that's about it. The main positive is that it's still there.
