  • A beautiful place for a walk. Plenty of places to have a barbeque. The adventure playground will keep the kids happy for hours.
  • Best place for bbq. Make sure you come in early as the best spots get filled quickly. It is also good for walks and jogging. There is a large park for kids. You can go for a lovely walk along the see front all the way to Hythe.
  • The most amazing 'country' walk by the beach! Great children's playground. Lots of barbecue benches / places
