We always used to pick up something to eat at the Three Sheels Beach but were so disappointed with the food last time we were there that we won't be visiting again.

Lovely hot day and great to see families using it !! But please clear up after yourselves!! There are plenty of bins. A lot of improvement in the area the last few years, and a great place for families, for old fashioned fun

We just sat and watched! But there is plenty to watch, not least in and around the lagoon. People, mainly parents and children - and grandparents - laughed ng, splashing, paddling, etc. Beautiful sand. Noisy. Crowded. We quite liked the restaurant there too.
