Wind chill made us wrap up but always a grand sandy beach for a stroll along to the famous dune where Rangers used to pre season. Usually has an ice cream van but weather clearly not summer season yet. £2 all day parking.

Quiet at this time of year. Long walks over the sand to the sea edge with very few people about. Good view of the hills.

Easy parking, cold morning walk but I can imagine it is perfect also on a summers day. Clean and accessible so ideal for families
