This is a stunning beach and I would highly recommend going to this beach, it is far better to view the cliffs from thiscvantage point than any other area. Although it was raining it did not detract from our enjoyment. Well worth a visit.

The car park is always busy, plenty of disabled bays, good tea kiosk, serving drinks, ice creams. Easy accessibility for boats surfing swimming. Council keeps it clean, toilet facilities clean. Shingle beach only drawback, sea views across to France 🇫🇷 on sunny days.

Plenty of parking for a small bay. There is a pub as well. Nice place to spend a few hours. It does get a bit busy but doesn't everywhere.

I never knew this place existed until the day I visited but there were cars from Germany Czech Holland and France so they knew about. After a winding and steep hill you arrive at a beach car park and then there is plenty of space...More

Don't see why not, particularly if you dispose of it properly afterwards.

Dogs are allowed on the beach but not between 9am and 6pm between May and September. To be honest though this ‘rule’ does not appear hard and fast and you can expect it to be enforced only on busier dates. The pub allows... More

I think that you might be able to from the top side. The beach has lots of cliffs along it that jut out into the water, so the answer is no, not along the beach.
