My husband can not climb up hills and this beach has a staircase leading down to the beach. It was clean and had very few visitors. Quiet and peaceful place to watch for dolphins and whales.

A lovely beach for a walk, lots of shells to look at along with many birds and a few seals. Was quiet the day we were there with just a few other people on the beach.

There was a bench to sit on a smooth short walk from the car park. Fairly easy stroll for me as a disabled person using a cane. Lots of beautiful wildflowers in bloom.
