Beautiful, peaceful beach. A hidden gem just a little further than Blackpool Sands. Great little cafe shack.

Having grown up in the North West, I am no stranger to a beach, but have fallen in love with this beach.  It has all the ingredients for a perfect beach; south facing, endless, parking, toilet facilities, a great cafe, and a perfect, calm, clean, gently shelving sea to swim in.  And if everyone else wants to go to Blackpool Sands, great, it leaves this beach for me!

Great beach to escape the crowds. Textiles and naturists mix. Great atmosphere.
