A great beach to visit, really beautiful sand and skies. Access to it brilliant, it’s a bit of a walk but it’s mostly flat and there are plenty of places to rest if you need to. Take your kite, it’s bright and breezy! No bins...More

Certainly worth a visit. Lovely place to walk and blow out the cobwebs, the beach stretches out for miles. Beautiful.

Don’t miss the opportunity to walk this beach and in the woods and over the dunes. You won’t regret it! It’s the most wonderful place and will refresh you, body and mind.

A beautiful walk through a pine forest down to a sandy beach. You can walk along to Wells beach too, where there is a cafe and toilets etc
