Yes, there is a walk from the parking to the beach (cows were docile when we passed them). But the this walk is more than justified by the fantastic beach, with great views of two castles. There are no facilities - part of the attraction...More

Checked this beach out on our visit to the castle, this coastline has to be the finest in the UK, helps that the weather was fine and i guess the reason they are so unspoilt is precisely because of the weather.
