Firstly the beach cafe is in a car park not on a beach, you cannot even see the beach from the cafe. Secondly it’s £5 to park, even if you eat at the cafe. The food is average. So if you fancy spending £5 to...More

Toll road £5 to isolated parking and beach was worth the trip for the walks and views even if only for a few hours. Hot drinks and food available after a bracing walk was most welcome.

We went with our friends and our dogs. It was brilliant for a walk with stunning scenery. The only downside was that there were no public toilets open in the carpark. We visited in January and the cafe and toilets were not open.
