A steep walk down to the beach but dog and people friendly! Good place to be when the "surf is up" if you like to surf that is. Sheltered beach within walking distance of the Jolly Roger cafe

Sweet, lovely little beach off the beaten path. Great place to walk the dog in the morning and the Finnygook Cafe (now oddly called the Jolly Roger, albeit I hate the name and refuse to call it that) serves up a superb Full English.

Great place to spend time on the beach. You can find a place to lay down on sand or on the stones if you like. Not many people even on weekends.

Lots of gorgeous tables outside and they even provide water bowls. The best view ever. I took my dog inside but she is a service animal, however I do believe they are fairly flexible.
