Pouring with rain, windy and cold, but it was February. On the plus side, it was easy to park. Pebble beach.

what a lovely quaint beach with traditional beach huts lining the edge of the sea. lots of children playing in shallow water. local activity centre where you can get reasonable priced food. downside is that the beach is pebbles. Great day out.

Yes dogs are allowed on the beach. The Bluebird Cafe opening times vary but you could walk at Lepe if you wanted to use Lepe cafe and eat outside if you have the dogs :)
