Great for long walks. Always plenty of parking spaces. A lovely beach. Great views. Always clean. We always seem to visit in the winter and its lovely so I'm sure its fabulous in the summer

Wonderful walk along the prom and beach. Shame dogs are not allowed in certain sections but I understand why. Also shame it’s pay and display further along by the sandy section. I’m so sad the pier has gone.

Sadly the pier is no more but the whole length of beach is looking great. The area is really back to thriving again and I am so pleased to see this.

Lovely beach enjoyed our evening stroll along it and watching the fishermen trying to catch the fish. Also in addition the free WiFi is a good thing to keep the kids amused.
