Never that busy. Lovely place to walk - ideal for dogs. NO bathing due to strong currents but a great place to chill out.

Be aware of the state of the coast path diversion. It adds about two miles and is very muddy at the moment

There are several walks around this area taking in the scenery of the pool and the sea. A delightful little cafe in the old stables of the old Manor House. This is all NT land.

It is possible to get there by road but not sure how - Google maps would help there. All seaward approaches involve high cliffs, unfortunately
