Great cove beach few steep steps down the cliff, but worth it. Watch out for the tide. Beach as a mixture of sandy and pebble spots

Not the easiest to get to but a great beach for a family day out. Rock pools, sand, shallow entry to the sea. Great

Hi, we were there in September and took our dogs on the beach, there were dogs with other families too. We didn't see any signs advising they were not allowed.
