Very busy and noisy Sea had lots of algie The beach was very narrow and didn't look pleasant. There were groins every 30 yards or so making a walk along the beach impossible. However parking is easy.

Lovely mild day after the snowy weather - and boats were covered in ice, had the beach to ourselves, delightful views and bird life. Fun place for all the family.
