Great beach for dog's.....However the ramp leading to the beach could be little tricky if you are a little unsteady on your feet...as it is a little steep. But well worth the trouble..

Visited yesterday and the ramp to gain access to the beach has been reinstated although quite a steep descent if you have mobility problems.

Like the previous review we found out this was closed but a local sent us on to cart Gap to exercise our dogs. I am sure once it is opened up again it will be a plesant place to stroll and/or exercise the dogs.

The erosion history is interesting but the beach has warnings re cliff falls. It was good to read about the erosion but not a beach for children

We walked along the beach, came inland around the headland then dropped back down onto the beach for a further walk. Very nice day out.

Hi there, I'm not 100% sure on that. It was quite a narrow road to get to car park. I'm sure there must be parking in the village. Have a great day sorry I can't be of more help.
