A lovely little beach close to our holiday location. Warm seas, sand and a pub close to the beach as well as other shops. We'll worth a visit.

Nice beach for a swim or just to relax on the sand. Nice place to visit and plenty of parking on the road down to the beach or the car park by the beach. Cafe and restaurant both overlooking the sea.
