This beach is lovely with the added addition of allowing dogs. Ample parking and a cafe that serves really tasty food. Great place for a family day out at the beach.

Stunning beaches, blue flag & I can see why. Beautiful clean sandy beach with rocks at one end. Sand dunes but a flat beach. Has lifeguards at during summer months. Lifeboat shop, cafe (lush food) & car park.

This little beach is a gem. I've only been here at off season and love it. Its a great walk with beautiful views and the ice cream in the little cafe is a delicious treat.

Big expanse of sand, lovely view and great place for walking the dog with the kids. Nearby parking, toilets and cafe. Dog loved running around and meeting other dogs, kids and hubby paddled in the sea. Lovely

Long sandy beach. Popular with dog walkers as permitted on part of beach. Some rock pools at western end, otherwise sandy. Gently sloping, take care not to get encircled by tide. Estuary can have nasty currents, stick to lifeguarded area if swimming.
