“Ok but quite a lot of pebbles”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2014

Nice long beach that extends around the bay, pity though there are quite a lot of pebbles that make it not too easy for walking, especially if you have a child in a buggy.

“If you want a great beach go to the West Shore”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2014

There is nothing wrong with this stony beach but if you want masses of sand to play on and space to run around then buy your beach goods here as well as a packed lunch and travel the 3/4 mile or so to The West Shore which is far quieter and in many ways better for kids.

“More effort needed.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2014

Beach is non-existent. Pile of rubble. Wouldn't give it the credit of 'pebbles'. Wide flat sea front but not many flowers (apart from the plastic ones tied to benches - why?- don't you remember your loved ones without plastic flowers?). No shade to speak of so if it's sunny you have to cram on a wooden bench in a row with everyone else and bake. Nothing much to keep us interested. Shops were tacky and cheap. So, suggestions.. Put some flower beds on the front with benches in different directions. Encourage some cafés to open on the front so you can sit and watch the sea with a coffee or beer. Replace the sand!!! Even us oldies like a walk on a nice beach. Build a bigger bandstand and have events. Go see Eastbourne and pinch their ideas. Sorry but won't come again.

“Stony?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2014

Recently made a return visit to the Victorian Extravaganza.

This beautiful town excells itself and it is such a joy to walk along the elegant prom.

The very wide promenade means no matter how busy, you dont feel crowded.
Plenty of seating and places to eat just off the prom.

Just one thing, the beach has been covered in stone, which from a distance looks Ok.
However, walking along the beach for an evening stroll is all but impossible when the tide is in.

Shame really, but the rest of the beach front is lovely.

“Good exercise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2014

A lovely walk to the North Bay to see the delightful views and a little bit of exercise. Good for the youngsters with the large play park on the front and if you are tired you can always get the land train back.
