This is one filthy beach full of dog mess! Very run down area considering there’s a caravan park right next door! Wouldn’t visit again.

A very long clean stretch of sand with dunes and interesting pebbles. The dog loved it. The sea was quite warm and there were a few swimmers even on an overcast day. No facilities but otherwise beautiful.

There is a free car park by the beach. After a walk down you get to a lovely white sand beach with grassy cliffs. Stunning views! It's a clean scenic beach. Recommended!

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
