Well worth taking the time to visit if you have a chance. The beach is pebbly and not easy to walk on if you have mobility issues. There are walk ways though and despite the hills it's accessible.

Love this beach. We go in all weathers and all times of the year. Peaceful, relaxing and beautiful. We love the beach cafe- surely the only carpeted beach cafe known to man??????????????????? Delicious snacks with fresh ingredients.

What a great destination in this small little village where smugglers were hiding themselves in old times and fishers are still fishing... Great views, narrow roads, beautiful houses and some cafes and restaurants. If you are around - it is really worth visiting!

This is a traditional fishing village with friendly shops and food and beautiful Cliff top surroundings of the south west coastal path . Great for walkers or just a spell in the deckchairs or bracing clear water

This is a fairly small pebble beach backed by high chalk cliffs. There is a small free visitors centre with information on the geology and history of beer. Some parking in the village with a large car park on the hill above.
