  • Really great holiday with the kids and would deffo go back again. Lots of stuff for the kids to do and only 5 mins away from a great beach️️️  more »
  • We walked the length of the beach which is just over 3 kilometres long (and we felt it) but it was well worth the effort.  more »

  • One of the nicest beaches I've been on. Very clean. Great sea. Had such a lovely time here. Cant wait to go again.
  • One of, if not the best beach in the UK. Great surf, plenty of space on the beach and a lovely quaint village as well. Surf shops sell some great kit. Good choices for lunch. Fab place
