“Holiday feel”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

Excellent beach to walk on - not crowded at all when we were there, also, with the tide going out, the beach stretched a good distance away from the dunes. Clean, beautiful sand, nice grassy dunes - perfect to while away an hour or two to get that nice relaxed feeling from being out by the beach!

“stunning beach”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

As other reviewers have said, the walk to this beach will deter the crowds. It's about a mile. Not good for wheelchairs or pushchairs as it's over some steep sand dunes.There are no facilities on the beach either, so you need to take water, food etc and a wind break. The beach is clean, the sand is pale gold and fine, the views are stunning. We spend 4 hours here with the boys on one of the sunniest Saturdays of the year last weekend, and we had the beach to ourselves - it was breathtakingly beautiful. There's something about the light here and the views that make it rather special.

“Ross beach”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

Always a bit windy, always beautiful and virtually empty, even on Bank Holidays. Good for bird watching and walking, just please remember to not damage the dunes as they are a very important habitat, don't light fires or leave litter and respect the signs put up during the bird nesting season .
