We stopped to see the sunset on our drive home. The parking at Minnis Bay was free and the views were amazing. There was a good atmosphere with lots of people taking photos.

I've been to this beach several times as it is lovely and disabled friendly with plenty of parking for all. There's a sandy beach, a rock pool, and with clifftops nearby, it makes for dramatic views too, even on cold blustery days. Further down the...More

Nice beach - pebbly when tide is in but sandy as it goes out - you can walk the dogs at the end of the beach all year and from October to i think May the rest of the area.

Minnis Bay is a fantastic place for a walk with its sea views over to Recolver Towers. Spectacular sun sets that can be enjoyed from the Minnis bar.

Visited for a day. Free parking on nearby streets, pay parking by Minnis Bay pub. Clean sandy beach for a stroll. Not many shops, pier which makes it a bit quiet. Ideal for those who likes to have quiet time. Will definitely go again

Wow what a fabulous day out. Free parking was a great start! Started with fishing in the rock pools, we caught lots of little fish (still trying to work out what they were!) shrimps, and crabs - all different sizes! We all totally loved it....More

Me and Becky went for a walk with Linda and her dog and it was such a lovely relaxing walk. The views are great and the people so friendly. A good place for a calming walk

Quieter than some places, definitely not kiss me quick. All the facilities you need are there, nice cafe, and a bar restaurant with good food, you can hire quad cycles and there is a tidal pool for grabbing plus a children's play park. Car parking...More

I have seen quite a few vans park up there and no signs to say you cannot. Westgate bay also people park overnight and some for a few days.
