A really beautiful sandy beach with the only downside being they allow dogs onto the beach. Not all dog owners are responsible when it comes to their dogs mess.

Absolutely amazing beaches. If you check the high tide times before heading down there you can get a decent chunk of the day sunbathing, building sand castles etc.
