The beach is lovely. But watch the car parking. We paid and still got a penalty notice from them. Which was really annoying. Very busy in the summer. As you would expect so get there early.

Its a very long beach with lots of things going on, lifeguards are there during the summer seasons. toilets are just located by the car park and you will need 20p to use them

Big beach, with restaurants , cafe and one shop. If all you want is the sea then this is the beach for you.

Yes you can but it is not a flat approach, however car park is close by.
