Very clean and lovely friendly locals. Really nice walks on the seafront. Plenty of places to eat which all looked nice and we enjoyed a nice cornish pasty sat on the beach.

This is an excellent beach. Really fantastic location. Love it and intend to revisit when possible. We stayed in a hotel nearby but there is charged parking near the beach.

Plenty of room and space to play games in the hard sand when tide out. Good facilities close by. Beach clean and plenty of litter bins to dispose of rubbish.
