  • Beautiful cove. Peaceful place. But be aware approach to beach very dodgy, both the steps on the right and definitely the slope on the left. Steps ok for the very sure footed. No facilities available.
  • This is a relatively secluded Cove. Officially the path/road? Is closed due to some serious land slides,which has actually buckled the road in places. It is still accessible with caution and if you are at all wobbly on your legs I would definitely not advise attempting it! Alas the cafe which was there is now boarded up so there are no facilities and the toilets are closed, I've no idea if repairs will ever take place due to the seriousness of the problem. However, there are other Coombes nearby well worth visiting in safety!
