We were lucky on both days body boarding. swell of 6 - 8 ft one day, 4 - 5 ft on another. RNLI patrolled. Small boards and swimmers kept segregated from large rigid boards. Very popular hence very crowded. Great, unusual surf!

It's a nice place to surf and take a dip but it doesn't provide good facilities to change or shower after getting in the water. The toilets are filthy and there is an expensive charge for wifi (there's no signal by the beach).More
