Stunning Sunday morning walks on the sand! Immaculately maintained & perfectly pretty with the candy coloured, stilted beach huts, along just the most incredibly breathtaking coastal views! Beauty as its’ best xx

Had a great time walking along the beach and in the woods with our dog. Really lovely time of year to visit as it was not busy at all. Great little cafe to have a cuppa too! Well worth the £3.20 parking for 2 hours!

Yes there is a chance to swim or to dip your toes in the warm shallow pools. Please be aware of the safety notices as the tides can be strong.
