We visited the beach on a Saturday and it was quite busy. The car park is £4 per car, regardless of how long you want to be there, but the car park is right by the beach and this is part of the reason the beach is so popular with families.
The majority of people stay on the end of the beach near the car park where there are watersports, a restaurant (pricey!), cafe, shop and toilets.
We went for a walk along the beach and were impressed with how clean the beach was (especially the further you went from the busy part) and the water was lovely too. There is a freshwater stream running into the sea part way along the beach, but it is very shallow and was fun to paddle through.
Dogs are allowed on the beach and this adds to its popularity too. However, this did mean that we came across a couple of piles of dog mess, though I couldn't mark the beach down for this as it was just the fault of a couple of inconsiderate visitors.
On the whole, a very lovely beach and well worth a visit.
