this beach is gorgeous,plenty of space.but toilets are a walk away back up the hill.
lots of rock pools for the kids,nice inn on burgh island.

Plenty of space. Soft sands. large car parks at not unreasonable prices. Can walk across to Burgh Island on low tide.

I have always wanted to visit here but never plucked up the courage for a beach outing with the children (I am NOT a beach person). This is an absolutely fantastic beach for any age. Children can paddle or wetboard (if that's what they're called - the short surf boards anyway). You can get the famous tractor to the island or walk across at low tide. Facilites are marvellous; toilets, shops and the parking is great - not a massive trek with loads of bags down to the beach and back up again. Can't wait to go back.
