This is as a great spot for a coastal walk or a bit of beach time. In Feb half term it was pretty quiet and made for a nice Bit of sunset photography. Lovely.

Dog friendly in the winter, its a pebble beach and not sand, but it is quiet, which is what I like. Cafe and Hotel/Bar overlooking the beach along with public toilets next to the car park.

The walk down and up Is hard and takes a while but when your down it's the most beautiful beach you could ever imagine, a long stretch of sandy beach with clean rolling waves. In the summer it would be fantastic !!!!!!!!!

The area is quite pretty and there is a paved sidewalk all along the road through this tiny town. Waves, water, scenery!
