The bay is nestled between two sharp inclines and is small with sand, rocks and pebbles. It had quantities of seaweed washed up after a storm. A climb above it is rewarded with great views.

Lovely little cove and cafe . Sat and had a coffee and piece of yummy cake on a beautiful sunny day . Great for children and doggies on the beach . There’s even some little shelters you can sit in at the cafe

Challenging one track lane access down to beach, with limited parking. Small beach which has the hidden peril of weaver fish that can give a very nasty sting.

Lovely bay and nice cafe. Not cheap but great quality. You have to get here early in summer holidays as car park is limited. Later people park, often inconsiderably on the approaching lane.

Once you’ve braved the hairy single track down. Car park is a reasonable price but not many spaces. It’s a shingle beach with some areas of sand so great for rock pooling and building sandcastles. Lovely calm water great for swimming.
