Don't surf here. I have spent thousands of hours surfing and this is a real bashing with rocks and super sharp spider crabs. Stay away from the mad hoards of weird killer jellyfish. Top tip: go to Croyde

Lovely little secluded beach. Access is trickier than most but well worth it. Great for inquisitive kids, bbq's and dogs.

Lovely, scenic beach that sits in a fantastic spot. Lots of rock pools for the kids to play in. Sandy beach and when the tide is out, I can see it being a great beach for surfers.

A great place to sit and take in all of the surrounding views , from Baggy Point to Morte Point. Lots of rocks to explore.. Or just to sit and relax and watch the world go by. Beautiful..

A delightful, attractive little beach laid mainly with shingle but nevertheless a lovely area. Gorgeous on a sunny day but arrive early and claim your patch!

Love this beach... You have to wait for low tide in order to access it. Bit of a hilly step but worth it... Just watch out for the nuddies lol.

This place is very secluded as its reached only by passing through a national trust area, up past the pub and around the side of a graveyard. You'll need to follow the very steep 'pathways' down, and head towards what looks like a bit of...More

You have to walk down a footpath through a big hilly field of sheep to get to it - when you get to the cliff edge there are rock steps going down to the beach - that's the only way to access it :)
