Lovely soft sand, gentle waves, steps leading directly into the water at high tide, a boating pool and cafes/restaurants and a pub make this a perfect beach!

Great beach, clean and tidy. Life guards and when the tide is out it has a tidal pool. Loved it. We came to see the shell grotto and should have brought our swim suits
