Each year we do a group sunset and bonfire evening - roast marshmellows for smores, nibble on other snacks, sing, laugh and enjoy the dark sky fill with stars! This is a magical experience every summer.

For birders this is a great beach. We had great looks at Razorbills, Gannets, great Shearwaters and many more. And the birds are quite close in but it would have been better with a spotting scope.
