Well worth a visit; bit of steep climb down to the shore but worth it for beach combing, stone skimming and finds of interesting bricks.

Nice beach for a run out along the coast, array of bars, cafes, shops and pubs. Not forgetting a visit to the famous Tommy. Noses Point is always a nice choice too and lots of free parking.

Great walk along the beach or the promenade . Has been ‘done up’ to great standard . Free parking . Lots of lovely little cafes and fabulous beach and sea . Hard to believe there was ever a coal mine there

Sean has certainly changed for the better. Gone quite upmarket. Good bars and cafes. The sun was shining which helped. The statue of the lone soldier stands out. Looks very clean. Bracing sea breeze. Good place to visit

The beach and town have a we are getting there feel about them clearly the paved area Tommy statue and beach are worth a visit alone. The beach had plenty of room to walk and run a dog. Plenty of parking all along the coast...More

You can have dog on the beach. Literally hundreds had dogs. It was too far in car to take ours though :-(
