It's nice sandy beach on a nice sunny day. Good place for kids and people with dogs. Near to the centre if you want a go for a drink or eat something afterwards.

Blue Ribbon award winning beach, ideal for children with great golden soft sand and plenty of space. Surfing (and lessons) are available but obviously this depends on weather conditions.

The beach faces the North Sea, and on a good day is very good to walk along. On a bad day, of course, the opposite applies!
