It's enormous and safe for kids. Very busy on sunny days. A car park, cafe and life boat station. Dogs can be walked away from the main sands and the dunes are great to explore or play hide n seek.

Glorious morning beach walk. Wind blowing the shimmering sand, waves breaking white and wild. Pretty views of the Cliff Hotel and Cardigan Island across the estuary.

Lovely long beach, great fun for the whole family but especially kids as it has really long stretches of shallow water. It can get a quite windy so wind shelter might be handy.
