A truly unique place and we enjoyed climbing over all the rock pools. I would say that good weather is essential to enjoy it at its best. Great photo opportunities.

Beautiful. The tunnels hand dug in Victorian times, for the wealthy bathers. A real sun trap and wasn’t too busy so you got to appreciate the view ...which is simply breathtaking.

Worth the £2.75 entry just to look and read the history. Even better if you have time to stay for a relax and a bathe. Was lovely and quiet midweek in June. Might get too crowded in high season?

Really lovely quiet little beach to get away from it all for a couple of hours, though be warned it's a stony beach, not sandy (I love stony beaches but they're not everyone's cup of tea.) However, when there's a wedding on the Gentleman's beach...More
