An historic bay, but although on the 'ancient highway' (surely a right-of-way) protected by a toll road. The sea views are fine, shingle, although turning to sand as you get toward The Stour Estuary (favoured by naturists - unofficial)

Fabulous place to visit, clean and Sandy beach, super run today, be aware the tide takes the sea right out, perfect spot for the dogs to run for miles. THIS IS A PRIVATE BEACH SO CHARGES APPLY

Found the beach from TripAdvisor ; at the gate there is an old guy charging 7£ entrance fee; apart from that it's a very nice and quite private like beach; suitable for reading books or BBQ . I will recommend it

Visited on a hot sunny day in August and there was a 100 metres between every grouping. You can park close to the beach. Facilities are limited, but who cares when you can pack you car and be a short walk from it.
