Lovely to come here and see the seals! I love being able to watch them from the distance. The beach is looked after very well and there is hundreds of seals to spot!

Absolutely blown away by seeing all the seals and their pups. The seals follow you when they are in the water.

It was a sunny but windy day so the two seals stayed in the sea but it was nevertheless a beautiful spot. Private parking at one spot cost us £3 for up to 2 hours. You must climb up the sandy sea pall but we...More
