I think there are 128 steps down to the beach (and therefore 128 steps back up) but the beach is beautiful and it’s worth the effort. We were on the beach at 9.30 this morning and had it to ourselves.

Off the beaten track this quaint and secluded bay is stunning, great views, Janvrins tomb on the central small island in the bay, long walk down the steps from the car park to the beach but well worth the effort.Popular cafe on the beach

This is a lovely beach to walk round - it's very pretty and the rock pools are fascinating. There are lots of cafes and toilets on the way round.
