Thank you Brian and glad that you enjoyed your visit. The trains are not that frequent during the day, maybe one per hour but if you were here on a Saturday you mightn't have seen any owing to the strikes. Kind regards - Ed

We loved chatting with one of the owners on the patio. It's a great place to have a drink and some snacks before wandering on the beach!
