Great beach, with wonderful beach huts, a little bit hidden away - perfect to while away the time and for an evening bbq.

Great way to spend a few hours. Need to be very careful with tide times as it’s a fair walk from the car park/Cobb to the best part of the beach. Initially the fossils are tricky to spot but once your eyes tune in there...More
