Great views. I attended a walk with the ranger and we have seen many types of birds. I even learnt to use binoculars, it was a great experience. Highly recommend visiting the Nature Reserve, too.

This is a very nice walk surrounded by the sea on 2 sides, lots of wildlife and safe for children, dog owners should have dogs on short leads!!! areas can be roped off but you can still see when birds nest on the shingle.
