Wonderful place to visit, wheelchair accessible. Flat access to town and beach. It is possible to hire wheelchair to access on to the beach as well. Accessible toilets are spacious, although doors heavy to manage on your own and push a wheelchair as well.

Went for a nice stroll and a paddle on a windy but fine day,better than any medicine any doctor can prescribe. Loved the little gift shops.Be careful as there was a warning about Portuguese men of war jelly fish being washed up.

One of my favourite beaches, there is a steep path to and from beach but this cater for wheelchairs and pushchairs. Good clear warning about things you may find like Portuguese Men Of War, there were a lot around. RNLI lifeguards still there.

Yes, there are clear signs telling you where they can go on short leads throughout the day and they're allowed on the whole beach after 5.30 I think.
