The beach is sandy and gently sloping. There is a cafe (the Beach House) and a kiosk for snacks and drinks. A short walk out to either headland will bring you to a fort. The ruins of Fort Pembroke are a short walk in a...More

Fabulous bay with a large beach. Safe for children. Amazed to see a ring recovered that was lost by a swimmer the previous evening! Do not know what sort of metal detector was used but it worked. 2 kiosks and a restaurant.

This bay is breathtaking. We went out to this bay by bus, and when we got off we were stunned. It is a glorious long sandy bay, and some lads were playing "cricket" of sorts as it was lovely hard sand. We sat with our...More

This cafe/ restaurant is right on the bay and has outstanding views. The food is generally good and you can eat indoors or out. Worth a visit.
