  • My second visit, never to busy with people, and a vast array of wildlife. Lovely to see the cygnets on a family outing. Would highly recommend visiting  more »

  • It doesn't appear to be a place where you can walk on the beach as the sea wall says Keep Out! It's part of the MOD, so best stay to the footpath as I didn't fancy finding an unexploded bomb while making my sandcastle! Lots of old artifact and signs about the place from the place from when it was occupied by the military from the 1800 or so. Lots to take in of this areas history. Lots of the old war time buildings still around but now privately owned. Go further East and you'll come to today's military zone, so no jumping over their fence either. Stay safe!
  • It's a great walk through to East Beach lots of History. Nature at its best. Lots seating places just to sit and wach the the world go by. Great for your children.
