Absolutely fantastic beach. Enormous, Clean and lots of space for activities. You can even get a cuppa or a bag of chips without leaving the sands as its got snack vans, icecream stalls and also kiddies rides. Surfers paradise too and in the evening the sun setting on the beach is just amazing.

Really clean, a long surprising stretch of beach, unhurried and beautiful.

The sea is gorgeous, and lots of wildlife to enjoy without it disturbing you too much!

I was so impressed at this beach. So clean, beautiful location and great facilities. Brilliant sandcastle sand. Worth checking the tide times so unlike us you don't build a huge sandcastle to see the sea heading rapidly towards it just as you finish!! There were some jelly fish spotted when we were there so look out for those.

Plenty of places to chose from to eat too. The little shop selling spades etc offers good prices and I didn't feel like we were being ripped off.

Clean toilets but couldn't find any shower facilities to get rid of the sand from the kids. We may have just missed these. The toilets could do with some ladies coin operated facilities though.

The whole family loved it here - def worth a trip.

This beach is amazing, so beautiful.
Large beach which has areas accepting dogs which is great for our mad mad mad husky! There are 3 sections, the first is no dogs allowed, the second is dogs only on leads and the third you are allowed dogs off the lead. Parking not to far away, £7 all day and restaurants/pubs near by - would recommend the red barn!
