Nice pebble filled beach with good views of the castle and the cliffs. The start/finish line for those swimming across the English channel was also there, kind of fun to see.

It isn't stone beach, and you can park the car right along the beach which is pay and display. There are the usual cafes which sell ice creams too. However you can also watch the ferries sailing in and out of the harbour.
