Very clean and safe beach,the access is good and easily reachable.As you enter Woolacome you can access the car park which is close to the beach, there is quite a good stretch of clean sand so this offers plenty of space for all.

This has to be the best beach in the South of the UK. Miles of sandy beach that is dog friendly. Crystal clear Blue Sea. At the far end is the cafe, perfect to catch your breath before you head back
