We loved it as we were walking dogs. I can't see this beach as a family beach but perhaps later in the season it could be. Parking is easy and free. There are several ways down to the beach but as is typical with the...More

Beautiful beach , rock pools and lovely soft sand. It has so much potential but is sadly spoiled by all the rubbish everywhere. A nice cafe and some more bins / dog waste bins would be amazing .

I enjoy running here. The beach and dene are very quiet and mainly visited by dog walkers. There is lots of car parking spaces. Beautiful place.

The beach itself is stunning, gorgeous views. However the path leading down to it through Crimdon Dene needs work doing to it. Slippy and muddy. I'd recommend heading down by the caravan park instead!

Very brief visit but a nice beach. No facilities there but nice for a walk and lovely sand. Good car park with lots of spaces.

Though we would explore this area to see if suitable to take the grandchildren, lovely beach and good sized carpark but no facilities, there was an ice cream van and that was it, no toilets or shop. Not ideal when you have kids in tow,...More

Loads of dog mess bagged and unbagged on the access steps to the beach. Lots of litter as well. Beach was ok would go further north next time.
