Excellent walk for all and every age. Even teenagers. Standup boards are available to hire. Art gallery is down south end near car park. Many lovely food places. Best coffee is added advantage. Great anytime of the year.

Quiet beach, flat and very good for a long stroll, there are no beach beds, parasols or beach bars, great for a run in the morning
