Such a fabulous beach and the café is excellent. It makes reliably scrumptious scones! One of our regular stopping off places when visiting the area.

We went early in the morning and there was no one there. Shared the beach with a few gulls and oystercatchers then took the coastal path onwards for stunning views, interesting flora and an enjoyable morning walk.
