School Fieldtrip .... lovely clean beach. Lovely view. Great place to measure beach profiles, longshore drift and groynes! You also need a group of polite young ladies to make the day wonderful. Barry's boys made the day great!

Fine sandy beach sloping gently to the water. Easy water entry, which is safe for kids. Lifeguards were on duty when we visited. Parking available on Shore Road.
