Visited the beach in November. Nothing but peaces, silence, and the crying of the gulls and the lapping of the waves... Absolutely lovely.

This is a great beach for a walk, with or without dogs. Total facilities = a tea bar but thats fine. Weekends can be fraught with noisy out of town visitors trashing the place with their litter & BBQs. Its a shame because its a very nice beach when the crowds don't mess it up

This place has everything families and friends are need for a relaxed day. Sea, BBQ place, playground and hopefully nice weather. Toilets, shops, train station nearby. Place to play ball games. My son absolutely loves this place. I am lucky to live close to the beach so I can visit often.

Great Beach for watching or taking part in water sports. The atmosphere is always good. Popular with all ages especially families as there are many barbecue areas and parking.
