I don't get pebbly beaches. Nor ones that you freeze in Winter or Autumn. But it works for others so enjoy.

Nice beach, not many people walk on it for some reason, maybe because there's two walkways along the front, I was a little disappointed when the lady in the museum told me that the pebbles had been imported from France.

We spent a lovely few hours on this great beach. The pebbly part shelves steeply down to the sea but the sandy part, next to the Cobb is much more gently shelving and more suited to families. In addition, at this time of year, they...More

The either side of the Cobb beach is dog friendly but not the sandy beach itself
