The beach is very nice with a lot to do for young people with a very good fair for all ages at reasonable prices, there is also an arcade that is very good and great fun for kids, it was a lovely day out and would go there again, I would recommend it to anyone!👍

Visit this fair regular and the kids always love it. It's a nice walk from Trecco bay and very close to the beach so could make a day of it. The fresh doughnuts are delicious and the kids love the prizes that they win
