We walked here and it is lovely for an easy stroll down the breakwater, There is always something going on divers, rowers, sailors. The cafe and toilets are clean but really 30p for a wee??. Bit of a rip off

There isn't much to say, its a small beach with stones! Not a lot to do but if you come knowing what the beach is like, then there is nothing unpleasant, just a little plain.
