  • Love this nature reserve. Never gets too busy unlike next door camber sands. Leads to a pebble beach which is miles long. Great for dog walks. The reserve itself is okay but the main purpose is it as a walkway to lead to the amazing pebble beach.
  • Gorgeous landscape walk with a pebbled beach sitting at the end ❤️, would be a lovely place to bring a picnic and chill out and take some gorgeous photos, so many cute dogs around and saw many different birds and insects. We were unable to find bathrooms but it’s possible they were somewhere and parking was free and they welcomed donations to keep it free.
