  • Put off by the ludicrous car parking charges. £12 for more than an hour. Stayed for an hour and then went somewhere else.  more »
  • Not too taxing and led us to the beach so teenager was happy. Lovely views of turquoise waters in the sunshine.  more »

  • Right by the sea. There's a cafe & a well constructed kiddies play area. Lots of seating dotted about. There is a picnic area with wooden tables & benches. Also a grassed amphitheatre to watch productions & bands play in good weather. A lovely place.
  • Beautiful, clean beach which could easily be mistaken for a tropical island. Water is lovely however can get deep quite quickly. Not a lot of sand, mostly pebbles. Lovely views and great place for barbecue.
