Went here last August, so am sorry for the late review. My partner and I stayed in a holiday apartment just opposite and found the beach a great place to go on the days when we just wanted to lie in the sun. This does depend on the English weather though :) Even though we were there in August in the sun the beach was quite quiet. The only downside was that the only place to get food and drink was the nearby Brewers Fayre which was ok but maybe it's because we are used to spending days on the beach abroad.
It was, however, a great place to spend time in the sun.
