Fun enough

Usual seaside attractions which is typical to British seaside town. Clean and a good spot for photos as you can get a good shot of the surrounding area and other beaches.

There is an amusements arcade inside with your standard 2p machines and arcade games, I was very chuffed as I won £5 on a 2p machine and also lots of tickets for a little prize.

A smashing pier with great views. But a shame it's only attraction is amusements. But the Pier Cafe is definately worth a visit. Good food at reasonable prices.
