Beautiful clean unspoilt beach. Lovely soft sand and great pubs on the front. It’s a bit steep to get up and down to but worth it.

A lovely clean well kept beach ideal for families. There are a number of beach huts on the promenade which are well maintained plus plenty of places to have snacks.

A unspoiled seaside place, clean and peaceful. deck chairs and sunbeams save you having to take your own great ideas.

Beautiful day for a visit to the beach. Some enjoying a paddle, some going for a full dip. Plenty of parking and not to expensive. Public toilets and plenty of places to stop for a drink.
