A beautiful isolated beach! Bit of a trek along a single track road and we had to push our way past a herd of cows who seemed to think they owned the road. No real facilities at the beach, just beautiful sand, views and isolation

A good walk over soggy fields led us to a wonderful red beach. Get on your waterproofs and find out for yourselves how much fun a deserted and uncrowded beach can be.

Wow, what a beautiful (and clean) beach, a short walk across pasture to the dunes. Lots of free parking, big enough for any motorhomes able to safely drive the single track road and use the passing places should another vehicle need to pass. There's plenty...More

A beautiful beach with dark red sand. Simply stunning, we visited on a lovely sunny August day and the beach was quiet and deserted. Amazing views, definitely a must visit.
