Lovely to come here and see the seals! I love being able to watch them from the distance. The beach is looked after very well and there is hundreds of seals to spot!

I wouldn't have thought it was ideal walking for someone who isn't so mobile. Certainly when we went in December when the seals had their pups on the beach, it was quite a walk to the viewing area with some steep steps up to... More
