I walk my dog regularly and I have noticed recently that the beach is kept much cleaner than it used to be. Really improved and dog bins are emptied regularly. Definitely worth a visit.

Beautiful beach with beautiful views. I would reccomend visiting here to catch the sunset on a gorgeous evening - the photographs you can take are stunning. Great for a stroll and to catch the views.

A long sandy beach. Very lucky in February to be there on a day of record temperatures, so could make the most of the promenade. A good choice of eating places nearby.
