Loved walking the Viking Trail and "feeling" the history. Very quiet and romantic at this time of the year.

It was pretty very pretty cliffs. We went in November so there was no one except for us and few other elderly people with their dogs. I but I am sure in the right season it would be buzzing... One of the best bays

Tiny, windswept but lovely beaches and chalk cliffs. Great for a few hours on the beach building sandcastles and paddling.
