Two beaches - we visited the dog friendly beach. Very rocky but a great beach and less busy than the other one.

Love coming here. Easily accessible. Easy to park. Lifeguards present. It is nearly always windy here. Family friendly. Bit gravelly though if you prefer soft sand. Charming little church.

We found this wonderful little beach off the beaten track. Fantastic spot for sun bathing and swimming, adequate parking but get there early and there are toilets and a lovely café for food.

The beach is secluded and in a beautiful location, just between two hills which you can walk up and look at the stunning views of the sea. When at low tide there is plenty of space to play around on, and is not tightly packed...More

Lovely little beach mainly pebble/stones but does have a fair bit of sand, particularly at low tide, plenty of rocks to climb and rock pools to explore, very close to National Trust car park and refreshment kiosk, well worth a visit.

Choice of beaches, one flat and sandy, the other smooth rounded flat stones. Short walk from car park and sunsets excellent. Beach shop with local ice cream.

Two beaches divided by a church. One I’d dog friendly, the smaller dollar cove, the larger beach, dogs are banned. Both beaches were very busy on the day we visited. The ice cream shop was very busy.
