A lovely little beach. We did visit on a very chilly day. But a great walk with family. If you want to get away from the central town area this is just perfect. All the family had a great time here.

Although we went near end of September and half term had finished this beach was nice and quiet. Tucked away only a mile or so east of the hustle and bustle of the town centre

Visited just as tide was turning, can't wait to go back at low tide as it looks fantastic for rock pooling. Had lovely, tranquil dog walk along beach watching waves breaking on the rocks. Off season must to visit.

Perfect for dog walking or to walk away the stresses of the day. Usually quiet but you do get the odd dog Walker and surfer.

Lovely walk on this beach , it has a dog friendly sign on half of the beach, in Summer and all the beach in Winter, its very private from the nearby main road, where parking is possible, there's a lovely Cafe on the beach, normally open in the Summer, or if you want to spend more the restaurantin The Osborne...

Never Again The ice cream bloke is arrogant,and doesn't give a toss The creep. AVOID AT ALL COST

We love this beach, we have lived nearby for 20years and brought our children and now our grandchildren here. Small shingle beach, but plenty of facilities in the summer, toilets, lovely cafe selling hot and clod food, Ice-cream and various non food items for the beach such as bucket spades and beach shoes. Also kayak hire ect. Very interesting beach... More

Managed to get away from teenage sons and relived our pre married life for the weekend. Lovely walk in the fading Devon light with my beautiful wife. Come on down...bring your own wife!
