“Lovely and relaxing”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

Just miles of sand to walk along with lovely views in both directions; hardly ever-crowded; easily accessible - just great for a long, slow walk and talk with friends, family - whoever! A special place!

“What a view!!!”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

My daughters wouldn't just settle for looking at the gorgeous view. We had to climb down the rocks and walk all the way to the waters edge so they could put their feet in. On the walk down we noticed several jelly fish on the beach. It was definitely worth it.

“Gorgeous beech”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

A visit to West Sands is a must, the vast expanse of beech (especially when the tide is out) is amazing and most of the area is dog friendly even in the summer. Car access is possible and once you get away from the town area there is barely anyone on the beech. I love it!
