Sad...

I visited beacon cove in the 80’s as a teenager and it was alive, however now it seems forgotten and somewhat derelict. Perhaps when they demolished the attached hotel and replaced with a small zoo (now defunct) it was only ever going to go one way.

A beautiful beach paradise ideal for sand castles and fun paddling and rock pooling, even more peaceful at evening time, a gem of a location…
