Incredible beach

May 05th 2020

Not been on the beach recently but most days its not too busy and your able to walk round to the neighbouring bay when the tide is out. Love this beach

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

Aug 25th 2019

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?
