Stokes beach was a great fun adventure. You get to it through a narrow tunnel laboriously hand carved though the headland. There's a cafe and toilets at the car park. It is a lovely place to spend a day.

We went down the path through the rocks and were stunned by the beautiful view! A definite must do! Just amazing!
