A great beach, with plenty of places to eat, dog friendly, lovely shops and bars. Only thing it's missing is showers.

Amazing beach with river flowing down it to the sea. Dogs allowed all year round. Very popular with families and dog owners alike. I have to say that during our weeks stay we didn't see any dog mess on the beach at all. Loved it.

Hi, there's a car park right opposite the beach - they do tend to put the prices up during holiday season mind you. The entrance is right next to Betty's newsagents.
