Nice place to visit after coastal walks but don't expect fast service or a wide variety of food. Only accept cash payment so be prepared as no cash point near by.

Come here every year and find it best to use the coast path as parking/car access is difficult. The church is like stepping back in time and the graveyard with it's stunning views makes this place unique.good quiet pebbly beach as well!
