    Plenty of sand for castles. When the tide is out the water is shallow, calm and clear. You can easily see crabs and sea snails. Rock pools for exploring too. There’s a cafe, a bar and toilets at one end. Not too busy. Park for free on the street.

    When we were children my parents rented a house for the summer holidays including a beach hut on St Mildreds Bay. It was wonderful & in September I have plans to visit it again just after my 70th birthday. I am so excited!!!!

    What did we get wrong?
