“It's the North Sea; what do you expect?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 10, 2012

Well-used and popular beach. In December, there were fishing boats drawn up on it and dinghies sailing offshore. There were myriad walkers (including your very own Victor) and dogs. Strewth! The dogs. Do be warned; not everyone clears up after fido and there can be some nasty surprises.

“Loved it - chilly!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2012

My boys and I loved walking on the stones - what a workout. Be prepared for jelly legs and soreness if you are out of shape. We found several starfish which was a neat experience. And lots of shells. Some days were better than others. The pier was a lot of fun to walk out on, and we all really enjoyed walking along the front enjoying the sea air.

“Clean Beach, Clean Water”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2012

Wow, this is what a local English sea-side beach should be like and I'm an Aussie..less touristy, yes it's a pebble beach but no sand-mess to deal with afterwards, water temp was quite good too. Also just very casual, no pretense.

“A well kept secret.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2012

Ok so it is not great for kids because the water is deep and there is no sand,but if you want loads of space around you to quietly read and think then this is the place.Good fishing too.Very good swimming.You can sit very close to the sea whilst seeing France in the distance. I just love it wow!
