Lovely little beach popular with dog lovers. Has a large carpark and toilets just next to the beach. Very pretty location and there is a lovely café on the beach. Something here to cheer everyone up!

Perfect little beach cove with a little coffee shop available to day dream the hours away. Coastal walks all around with a fish restaurant overlooking the bay.

This beach is very clean. There is adequate parking, clean toilets and a decent cafe serving real food. Ideal for dog walkers, walkers, surfers, swimmers and families. A small crazy golf circuit is just the icing on the cake.

Can take dogs from October to Easter. They have a whale of a time playing with other canines! Kids well catered for too, with rocks, sand, sea and ice cream!

Worth walking along the coastal path to this beach. Nice cafe with cakes and lovely panini at lunch time. The beach has a great water sport school. Large carpark, crazy golf and beach huts.
