Superb beach and swimming area. Well worth the money. Area to change and toilets. Great scenery I enjoyed drawing and painting the wonderful rock formations. Lots of rock pools if tides right, always with things to find. Spent all day here.

This beach is beautiful right from high tide to low tide. Only £2.50 to enter and babies go free. We had lunch picnic during high tide and played in the stones / sand while watching the tide go out. Then at low tide we went...More

What a delight. When you approach you have absolutely no idea what you will encounter inside. The entry is via a long tunnel through the rock- excitement rises! There are tunnels to different viewpoints and bays. The venue is on three levels, beautifully presented to...More
