Loos, cafe, water supply, all poor, and no seating other than the few chairs outside the sad cafe. No deckchairs or windbreaks any more, the only thing that was an improvement was the new beach huts. A stunning beach, needs a big investment to get the visitors back.

I have a beach hut at this beach and I'm highly fond of this beach myself. Being a child, I know it is a great place for children you can sit there until late in the sun and its lovely place for a beach hut. The cafe however was not quite good:L from the outside it is unappealing it needs a desparate makeover. Being a vegetarian I do not buy food from this cafe as the variety I found very poor. However I did buy some chips and I'm sad to say I was very disappointed theч were greasy and very oily. They, to be honest tasted vile just greasy and probably cheap. I was very dissapointed about the quality off food. The inside is dull and also unappealing as well it needs a paint and some new things. They're is no healthy food. Only greasy fish burgers bacon chips and egg. Whatever happened to salad, jacket potato, vegtables, healthy sandwiches such as egg and cress cheese. The food needs to be much better quality and highly more various to people who do not eat meat a few members off staff seemed blunt, uncaring and bored. The toilets are also need a makeover they are old smelly run down and horrible. Apart from this, the beach itself is lovely.

Lovely sandy beach with all facilities - toilets, café, chalets for rent and nice wide prom. Ideal for families and children. For many years we hired a chalet for season and made some good friends who came back every year. We only stopped when chalet rental became hard to get it was so popular. Would highly recommend this bay for daytrip/holiday.
