This is a lovely beach very clean and tidy with amazing golden sand. But it's only really accessable by bus or car, and the car park isn't that cheep. But after arriving you wouldn't be disappointed with the location it's spectacular.

Come here quite often as we love it. Fantastic huge beach which is clean and tidy and great for the dogs to run and play. The sand dunes are the best I’ve ever been to. Well worth a visit

A lovely wide sandy beach. No one on there at this time of the year except one surfer braving the cold. Must be lovely in the summer time but I should imagine it would be very busy. A beautiful beach.
