A lovely cove, once you have driven through the narrow lanes. Nice beach. Rocks to clamber on, but the tide comes in and then no beach. Another cove round the corner which is lovely too, small fishing boats. Lovely scenery.

Wonderful scenery, it is great for walking, plenty places to eat for all ages or enjoy an ice-cream. It is quaintly English seaside cove, not crowded, parking by beach and coastal path.
