what a nice clean beach with lots of sea shells for the kids to collect and with sand dunes for them to play in, the sea is gently shelving.

Lovely day with the family on a very clean and well cared for natural beach. Will definitely go back there with the family and a picnic in the summer.

Great flat sandy beach but beware of speeding cars as cars park on the beach. Costs £5 per car but you can stay there all day. Great for swimming.
