Amazing local amenity, particularly when the tide is out, for dog walking, jogging or just having a walk. Wear wellies to allow access to to more distant levels.

I wouldn't have people go out of their way unless they are looking for a modest beach like walk. Depending on tides this area has some beach to walk on with lots of clam and mussel shells. Plenty of sea birds and shallow warm water....More
