Nice family place to go with no horrible amusements or noise! The public toilets are clean. Good to take your own drinks and picnic out of season as its a long walk up for a drink!

Easy parking, mixture of sand and shingle areas to walk our dogs. Public conveniences. Information boards and flags to tell visitors about sea conditions. Popular place for dog walkers.
