Found this place while on a long weekend away with the wife and dog. It’s a fairly small beach, lots of rocks, loads of rock pools, very sandy with loads of shells. There’s a small car park that costs £2 all day, there’s a small...More

Fantastic beach, dogs loved it. At the junction before the beach, take the left fork through the farmyard and follow signs to the beach

Interesting beach that is reached by driving through a farm. There is a small charge to park and a basic toilet only. Not really much sand but a great beach for rock pooling and exploring.

Lovely beach but you need to time your visit with the tide. If the tide is in then the beach is pretty small, if it's out then there is miles of area to explore. The car park is a £2 honesty arrangement, but take care...More
