After negotiating very narrow lanes you arrive at the carpark £4.50 . A long descending walk takes you to either the estuary or a beautiful sandy beach … but beware there are no shaded areas so a parasol is a must . After a long...More

Full marks to the Fleet Estate for providing improved access through the steps to the beach through the gorgeous decline through the trees. Breathtaking welcome as the beach manifests to delight all who visit for whatever pleasure. One of my favourite beaches.

First visit here and it is a hidden gem, the beach is a lovely clean area, plenty of bins which does make a change. Only downside is the long walk down!
