Why go to the Caribbean when you can get views like this? Blue seas, white sands and the pleasure of knowing that you're still in the UK. It doesn't get much better.

A beautiful beach with plenty of shelter (depending on which way the wind is blowing!). White sand, crystal clear waters and beautiful views over to Samson. Why go long haul when you can come here :-) It is a lovely walk to get here too,...More

Lovely beach, crystal clear waters with a seal or two watching you paddle or if really brave swim. Stunning views out to sea.
