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.

A gorgeous, vast space. Quite different from the Norfolk coast that we're so familiar with. I've decided I like the West coast and should visit more often. Shame it's 6 hours from home.
