windswept but long and sandy

Although we were there on a cool and windy day this is a great beach for a sunny day. Good for walking a long distance (over 1 mile) ad with great sand for children

With the golden sands it would be a great place to go with the children. Everything you need at hand. We took a walk along the prom a a dull windy day and it still looked good.

I would never move anywhere else in the world! These beaches are so lovely, clean, and not stoney like some beaches. When the summer arrives it's always packed down here. We love to go down for picnics and evening BBQ's, even the occasional fish and chips
