Found the beach from TripAdvisor ; at the gate there is an old guy charging 7£ entrance fee; apart from that it's a very nice and quite private like beach; suitable for reading books or BBQ . I will recommend it

Visited on a hot sunny day in August and there was a 100 metres between every grouping. You can park close to the beach. Facilities are limited, but who cares when you can pack you car and be a short walk from it.

Cost £7.00 to take our car onto a pebble beach, loads of dogs not on leads and leaving droppings all over the place, absolutely disgusting if you have young children

Unless you just want to sit on the pebbled beach its not worth paying to access this bay as the rare paths are bumpy, sandy and uneven, and the road is too far back from the sea to enjoy a nice walk. Very disappointing.

Unfortunately, no there aren't. There were some but they look like they have been closed for a very long time.
