Stayed very close to this beach last week. The RNLI were entertaining on the Sunday with some super water displays and re enactments on the beach followed by live bands. A wonderful day

The beach is a stone pebble beach I have seen deck chairs in use on the beach but can not say for sure if they were hired.
