  • Even though the weather wasn't 100%, there were plenty of people around and many surfing. Nice area to walk & the sea itself turbulent & magnificent.  more »
  • Great beach for a walk when the tide is out. We walked from the village to the far end by the bridge and back again, around an hour in total.  more »
