“Sun, Sea and a secret seal that visits the shore here most days.”
Reviewed July 31, 2012

Family friendly with lots locally to see and do - Like dipping your toes back into 1960's seaside family holidays for the day and if you're really clever you can play spot-the-seal just yard offshore while you're there too.

Clean beech, can get a bit busy, love the fish and chips from the bar/shop on the beach - shower and toilet facilities are near by and are in good order.
