Enormous sandy beach backed by dunes great for walks and beach stuff. Not sure about swimming - said there was tricky currents etc. There were lifeguards on duty and a small area that said ok. Rock pools further round.

We got there for tide's out, which meant the beach is huge. The kids loved messing around on the beach, and searching for Dobby's final resting place. Nearby is the car park with toilets, and can thoroughly recommend the burgers from Cafe MôR, around £6-£10...More

We run the The Golden Plover Holiday Home and Art Gallery in Warren which is minutes drive away by car or a good 40 minutes by foot. All our guests love this beach and we are lucky enough to have it on our doorstep.
