Stunning beach, loved it. £1 for 4 hours parking. Free toilets. Very welcoming dog friendly beach. Free dog poo bags. Alcatraz is fab for a wine or a hot chocolate.

We visited on a short stop off during our journey, it was lovely sitting up high having a drink watching the world go by. Just a shame we couldn’t stay longer to enjoy the serenity!

This is an awesome big sandy beach whether it’s winter or summer. However it gets so busy in the summer. Great variety of restaurants, cafes and a brilliant ice cream shop.

What a lovely place, clean beach, doggy friendly and miles of sand to walk on. A good couple of hours on the beach allows the pasties to be walked off as these are also amazing 😉
