A lovely beach, dog friendly and full of rock pools and facinating pink and green rock. We spent two very happy mornings there with our dog.

lovely place for long walks, lots of rock pools. Not sure how high the tide comes but need to keep your eye on it. Lovely to walk to Seaton after eating at Inn on the Shore.

One of the last dog friendly beaches around, stunning views and easy walking all the way to Seaton. Cafe and bars local worth even just a visit for a look. Spectacular seas in winter and surfer world..

We came here on a pretty busy Sunday. The beach was ok, quite dark sand but the real positive was that our dog was allowed off the lead and she had a ball in the sea. It won't blow you away, but it's ok particularly...More

Nothing official, but I believe naturists have used a section of beach at the very far eastern end which is a separate section of beach completely and only accessible if you clamber over a section of rock at low tide. I walk... More
