Been there a few times but there’s never any parking spaces so I don’t wast my time going any more. It’s a pity really as the beach does look nice but speaking to locals there’s other places nearby just as nice with easier parking.

Bootiful golden sand stretching towards Horton and a nice walk from the prom to the shoreline. As Danny Boyle called England’s biggest secret. Unfortunately there’s no access for wheelchair users onto the beach but easy wheeling on the promenade. Plenty of refreshments at the beach...More

I walked the beach every morning just after dawn. Mostly dog walkers or joggers and most said good morning. I never felt unsafe even though i was on my own
