Nice pleasant beach private corner nearer Marine drive. The only thing that lets it down is the amount of seagull mess around the pond.

A beautiful beach, flanked by mountains. It's much nicer than the East Beach and is way quieter, just a few dog walkers and you. The views are simply breathtaking and if you climb the Orme a little it just gets better. My new favourite beach!

Street parking was readily available and the easily accessible paved promenade had lovely sea views. Access for dogs is restricted on the main section of sandy beach for five months from May through September and bins are provided.

The West shore is always referred to as the quieter beach but in many ways is the better of the two bays as when the tide is down it has a beautiful sandy beach and very shallow for bathing. There is plenty free parking but...More

we visit here often, The cafe just off the main car park was lovely, clean, friendly helpful staff. The menus looked value for money, we just had a latte and a wedge of cake. Nice quiet promenade after the huddle and busle of mostyn street.

They are at the moment in certain areas. However, this looks as though it may change as there are meetings being held to discuss if they should be banned all year round.
