Mexico Towans Beach Reviews

Massive Beach

Jul 24th 2020

Spent a lovely afternoon on Mexico Towans, it was lovely and clean, we could walk for what seemed like miles with the dog.  A very dog friendly beach, it was lovely seeing all the dogs running free (but still under control and being very well behaved - and those dogs that struggled were all on leads).  Lots of little jelly fish on the beach! Very nice little cafe at the top which was nice after the hike back to the car! Didn’t spot any toilets but we weren’t there long enough for that to be an issue.

Great beach but too many dogs

We Stayed at The Beachside Holiday Park which is great as It doesn’t allow dogs.On a good day there can be some pretty decent waves for bodyboarding and there is plenty of space for beach games etc
However the amount of I controlled dogs running about can be a real pain especially if you have really small children.
