“Wonderful view”
Reviewed July 13, 2014

Sand and coastal plants as far as the eye could see. Need to visit again. You need the whole day to have look around the whole nature reserve.

“Pleasant”
Reviewed July 8, 2014 via mobile

Car parking was free. We took our dog on a walk through the reserve to the beach at the far end. We are not bird watchers but found them very interesting. At the beach end were two world war two bunkers which you could visit. Lots of sand on the beach at low tide. The walk took 30 minutes each way eith stops. Small cafe and pub at harbour.

“Lovely and interesting walk”
Reviewed July 5, 2014 via mobile

Plenty of parking (and loos) at the start of the walk and good pathway underfoot. Through a nature reserve so interesting for bird watchers. Also quite spectacular displays of coastal plants, better and more varied than we've seen on other coastal walks. A swim for the doggy and everyone's happy. There are several routes so you can choose whether to do a longer or a shorter walk.
One small grumble. More poo bins are needed. But other than that it is now added to our list of favourite holiday walks.
