This is a mile long beach of shingle and sand with moderate access for the disabled. Dogs are allowed in restricted areas. The wide, south facing, gently sloping beach is a popular place for water sports, including scuba diving, fishing and yachting. A wide esplanade runs most of the length of the beach making walking easy and offering good views.
Although the beach shelves in places, the bathing is generally good. It is ideal for children, with sand at low tide and plenty of rock pools to explore.
