    Great beach for children

    May 27th 2019

    Lovely safe beach with no noticeable slope.  All sand,  very clean.  There is a car park two minutes walk away, a tea and ice cream shop,  and a great dog-friendly bistro serving keg lager and good quality home-made meals and gorgeous cakes with friendly service (and a free biscuit for the dog).  Dogs allowed on beach out of season.
