Miles of flat sandy beach, plenty of rocks for kids of all ages to climb on, caves in the cliffs to explore & good waves for the surfers & bodyboarders - I'm not a surfer myself but fun to watch.

Quickly grown to become one of my favourite locations in the Dutchy, stunning location, with the added bonus of seals around the area. Beach is perfect on a sunny/hot day.
