Poor signage led me to receive a parking ticket, I just did not see any signs requesting payment. Parking is free outside the car park!!!

Such a wonderful location. So much to see. Invest in good binoculars and make the most of the surroundings. Dozens of varieties of birds visit the bay all year round and you'll possibly get the chance to see the seals.

The bay is increasingly popular with tourists and the £7.50 admission fee at the Toll Booth to access it does not undermine the joy of walking there. Popular with dog walkers and certainly the sea air and exercise works their bowels - too much dog...More
