Brenton-on-Sea is great for walking and sunbathing and is popular with paragliders. A big rock formation, castle Rock, is a favourite fishing spot for locals. Swimming is dangerous because of rip currents.

An incredibly beautiful beach that you can walk for miles on. Super soft sand, rock pools and the hugest sky you've ever been under. Hardly any one there even though it was half term.
