Very stormy weekend but this wonderful beach is so sheltered. What a lovely beach for children, walking dogs - anyone really.

The food was good, the location right on the beach was brilliant. The restaurant was a really pleasant place. Sadly, I thought it was rather overpriced. I have been there twice and wouldn't go again.

A superb beach giving 365 days enjoyment to all ages. When the bathing tents go up, the putting green opens and the ice cream and tea shop springs into life surely a demi-paradise for holidaymakers and locals alike

Some dishes are a little rich so be careful what you order. Soup was hot and tasty, vegetable curry nice, fish and chips excellent.
