This beach is on my door step. Go there alot. Less well known beach, which means that it normally quiet. Kids love it there. Some shallow streams which keeps them going for hours. Can be untidy at time, so if you go, please tidy up afterwards. Quiet, relaxed an safe - happy days.

This was an unspoiled beach which appeared to be clean. Parking was easy and access to the beach was good. I stayed about an hour as was looking around the area, but would go back again
