This beach has been a favourite of mine since childhood. A shame the storms took the sand away, but that ahs not detracted from the lovely waves and views. I used to stay at the caravan park just up the hill. This was a quiet, friendly and well run caravan parks for families only. No night clubs or bars (only... More

This was the first time we visited this beach and were so lucky with the weather in mid November. This is a really lovely beach in a nice bay, relatively small. Some great rocks to climb or sit on and watch the waves come crashing in. This part of North Cornwall has a stunning coastline. Would recommend a visit especially... More

Great place to finish a long walk! The clif-side road is closed due to storm damage and will be for quite some time - but the closure makes the walk more pleasant with no cars.

Spent a great afternoon peering in the numerous rock pools. Lovely clean beach which made a change from some we visited. Will definitely be back, with body boards in tow.

Lovely beach but with half-term pending, why shut the loos and beach shop at the end of September? If you don't mind that, this is a lovely clean beach with a huge expanse of sand and good surf.
