A nice big sandy beach with a nice cafe and a big pub. Tide goes out a long way, good for swimming, paddle boards and when the swell is right surfing. You can take a nice long walk along the beach. Dogs allowed after 7pm.

Lovely sandy beach with easy access car parking behind. Also pub behind just right for refreshments. Tide comes in quite high which washes it clean.

Absolutely fantastic beach with amazing waves if you get a good day. The tide comes right in to the cliffs in places at high tide and goes out a long way at low tide. Thoroughly recommend

There is a cafe just up the steps from the beach. Called the bluff with an amusement arcade and great food. Also an outdoor play area and a bar.
