  • Great beach of course.. Plenty of room. We got a bodyboard and went bodyboarding which is great fun! Quite hard to relax in the sea due to the waves but this is as expected due to winds...

  • On a nice day...just lovely! Though the sea front car park at £10 a day is a little over priced. There are cheaper places to park!
