What a great destination in this small little village where smugglers were hiding themselves in old times and fishers are still fishing... Great views, narrow roads, beautiful houses and some cafes and restaurants. If you are around - it is really worth visiting!

This is a traditional fishing village with friendly shops and food and beautiful Cliff top surroundings of the south west coastal path . Great for walkers or just a spell in the deckchairs or bracing clear water

This is a fairly small pebble beach backed by high chalk cliffs. There is a small free visitors centre with information on the geology and history of beer. Some parking in the village with a large car park on the hill above.

There are three cafes to choose from on the beach. Deck chairs laid out. Beautiful views. Fresh fish from the fishermen. Walks to Seaton or Branscombe.

Pebble beach but has mats for getting boats in the water and out...good to stroll.Attractive beach with bar at the top, a small gathering of sailing boats that makes up the sailing club but is more like a working beach for the small fishing boats.
