It's a nice beach, not the best i've been to in the area but if you go on a sunny day it's a great place to spend some time.

The approach to the beach is very run down with a number of derilict buildings & Pontins Camp which looked neglected. Aloso somewhat expensive to prk on the beach with no facilities.

A lovely beach, very well maintained and lovely and clean. Parking is very pricey though, but if you visit out of season that is not a problem.

A massive wide beach, nice sands, dunes. Some facilities such as toilets, ice cream van, snack can. Clean beach. Good for paddling. Can park for a fee.
