Great beach, a few shops, life guards for you're safety. Remains quietish as such a large area that is great to get some privacy

A beautiful place that enables you to watch the world go by. A sense of peace comes over you when here and also good for kids and dogs. A great place for exercising as well with great scenery. Will certainly be returning in our T4.

Minnis Bay is a relaxing and quiet place to walk, relax and sit and watch the world go by, it's not that commercialised and can be easily reached with good parking

Minnis Bay - a golden beach with clean water good enough to swim in. No amusement arcades, no burger vans - just beachuts and deckchairs and make your own fun.

Gorgeous sandy beach! There is even a tidal pool. Great place for a chilled out walk along the seaside, but be warned- many others will have the same idea!
