Stunning beach and so very clean. Parked near golf course and walked along and back into village. Definitely worth a visit if you are in the area.

This is an amazing beach - we were there as Storm Callum was brewing, and the sand appeared to be moving like water over the beach. Truly atmospheric.

I’ve never seen any & there are no signs to say you can’t. It’s quite a busy beech with many dogs so even if you can I would think twice about it

Sorry; been on holiday! Shouldn't be a problem but have respect! There is a built in BBQ area in a park off of Lovers walk- this is not far from the beach- less sand on the food and more controllable.
