Great unspoilt coastal location. Never too crowded or noisy. Easy parking and plenty of space to get away from it all.

Beautiful stunning beach. Fairly easy access across a boardwalk though not ideal for pushchair or wheelchairs . Good parking facilities. Well worth a visit also continuing on to Mizen Head signal station.
