This time of year we visit with our daughter wrap up warm and find shells, however we visit all year round and in the summer its a busy beach, there are loos free parking and a cafe. It's always clean and there is a life guard in season.

A very peaceful place to relax and chill out. Quiet and plenty of parking. The place suited by need for solitude.

Visited as a group, the kids had an exceptionally good time, picking shells, seaweed, the tide came in quite early so it was a rush for the kids. Neat surroundings and good location. You may want to go along wit your beach gear, as we didn't get any to rent!

Just a bit gutted that the beach is on here - it's been a lovely quiet beach for years away from the crowds. We love it, and come as much as we can

Westbrook Bay has a lovely sandy beach with a great cafe called Pavs. Here the food is good, honest and excellent value. We sometimes drive over just to sit outside and eat a meal, cooked to order, whilst we look out onto the beautiful beach and sea. There is the opportunity to buy a replacement for that bucket and spade.

The beach itself is fantastic, we have been going every year with our local sure start,we have always spent a small fortune in the cafe there too. However, this time, the older lady in the cafe was extremely rude to myself and my son, and very unprofessional,and unnecessary!We wasnt going to let her spoil our trip though :-)

This is my favourite bay and takes me back to my youth when I had a beach hut on the promenade. Still unspoilt with just a café serving good food, snacks and ice creams
