Been going to Newton Beach and the local dunes for over 40 years. Recently bought a kayak, if you get the tide and wind right its perfect for new kayakers also swimming and paddle boards. Great place with a nice pint available just up the road on the green.
Great beach for walking dog, plenty of space, car parking (chargeable).
