    Dogs nearly outnumbered Children on the beach

    Sep 06th 2019

    We visited in August School holidays, despite signs for dog restrictions this beach was a dogs paradise, watched one owner put sand over their dogs poo instead of picking up. Won’t visit again, shame as it’s a beautiful little beach with a car park, toilets and some little places to buy ice cream.

    Too many dogs

    Although dogs are meant to be on lead and only on certain parts of the beach, didn’t appear to be enforced

    What did we get wrong?
