Went for a walk on a very cold very windy day. Somehow added to the beauty of the place...nice contrast to summer... and of course far fewer people and the litter so many leave. Lovely place

Nice and flat beach, not to windy or busy. We went with the dogs, and we watched the sun set ( which was quite spectacular I must add!) definitely going back once the weather gets a bit warmer!!

I would say not - I never saw any - just a massive beach with pools of water and wonderful sand dunes - but well worth a visit

I didn't see any. What I did see was plenty of well behaved dogs off of their lead enjoying themselves.
