    Great beach

    Mar 05th 2022

    Great beach, free parking, two cafes and a shop. Dog friendly. Pretty pebbles and larger pieces of alabaster. I have yet to find a fossil!
    You do need to be aware of the mud at low tide.

    Brilliant Dog Friendly Beach

    Aug 14th 2022

    Great place to bring your dog all year round, the beach is a mixture of sand, shingle and rocks. The Hoburne Holiday Park where we stayed has a brilliant cafe with barista coffee and amazing cakes which we enjoyed and a convenient dog shower which is amazing especially after our dog buster got muddy.
