This is a great skimboarding beach at high tide and a great place to go with the family and do some body boarding

This is one of our favourite beaches. We are both 55 but we had a ball on the belly boards, a little steep to get to but there are rails all the way down great cafe to get amazing cream teas and much much more.

Came here for a couple of days with my other half and this is one gorgeous beach, it's lovely and quiet too so you don't have the hassle of other people 'agitating' you! Simply heaven!
