as a local I have come here often during the summer. Parking is a problem here and most of the time your in for a 15 minute walk, also don't go on big tides as they close the beach due to safety reasons (there's no beach) and they wont let you go off the rocks

We visited when the tide was in which is very dramatic with towering cliffs, a waterfall and crashing waves. There is walk down to the rocks - the lifeguards seal the very bottom off at high tide.

A fantastic place to visit - when the tide is out there is a large sandy beach with several caves. Limited parking if you decide to drive right down to where the cafe is but large car park at the top and ten minute walk down. The cafe at the top of the steps leading down to the beach serves...

Twisty roads lead you to Plemont bay. Tucked into a cliff it is breathtaking. For walkers there are trails (lots of steps up so only for the fittest or strong legs) but if you park up the top of cliff you can still see the views without climbing so take advantage of the free car parks.

If there's no room on the middle slip road you'll end up parked at the top of the cliff next to it and have to walk all the way down and up again:) The paths/steps are well defined so no problems theselves but there are quite a few of them:( BUT the beack more than makes up for it, golden... More

Along with Beauport, this probably has to be my favourite beach. It's always fun to visit and explore the mini caves. There are also some awesome places to walk along the cliffs too! Worth a visiting!

Lots to explore on this lovely beach - a wide stretch of lovely sand plus caves, rock pools etc. Off the beaten track so doesn't get crowded. Limited parking on road above (by great little cafe with amazing views) then a fairly steep walk down steps.

Another LOW tide experience great little cafe at the bottom of the hill. Walked in along the coastal path from the Racecourse, Heading to Devils Hole. Enjoyed a good hour just exploring the caves at low tide followed by a well needed coffee and cake

Loved this beach. We happened upon it by chance - we basically got lost in the north of the island!! So, this beach is no good for people with walking difficulties or very young children, as there are approx 100 steps down to the beach. Not accessible in the mornings, so we had lunch in the cafe and then continued... More

We love Plemont Bay, the only negative is the long walk up and down the steps! The cafe is OK and toilets are up the top so go before you get down on the beach. The caves are spectacular and don't miss the waterfall if you are able to get into it (recent rockfall prevented this when we visited). The... More
