Love having this so close- amazing beach, perfect for those sandcastles and sunday days out. Tucked away gives you beautiful views without being overcrowded.

Sat nav will find this beach. Tide goes out a long way. Lots of places to hide from the wind. In summer parking may be a problem so turn up early. Learn to reverse in narrow country lanes!

Inaccessible, pot-holed road, few passing places or parking spaces. If you manage to get there only one turning place (if nobody has parked there). Dogs and dog poo await you on the beach. The road and some parking spaces are just about to tumble into the sea below (with any parked cars). Beware of the rapid incoming tide. Try Challaborough.

Our first visit here whilst staying in the area. Drove down where parking is very limited but it was early evening so no problem. Tide was low so we were able to have a lovely walk along the beach. Definitely need to check tide times, especially if you're doing the coast path as you have to cross the river via a sand bank. Lots of birds including swans and a heron. The rooks were floating and all in all a perfect walk. If you have children there's lots of natural things to do and safe for paddling in certain areas. There are no facilities ie toilets but lots of woodland cover for emergencies!! I could imagine on a sunny day you could spend the day here with a nice picnic. Our dogs thought they were in heaven.

This is a beach with no facilities. No cafe or toilets. Parking is on the edge of the road so not really suitable for wide vehicles. Lovely views out to sea and Mothecombe beach
