  • Many beaches in the area are average and run down, this one is beautiful and not too busy even at peak times. Lovely walks along the cliff tops and a lush stretch of sand. Free parking so definitely w...  more »

  • I visited the bay twice as the Saturday we were caught in a thunderstorm so had our picnic hiding in 'the cave' on the beach. It's amazing how to see such beautiful nature but it saddens one to see ho...  more »

  • Beach is soft sand and nice with white cliffs and caves to explore. Walk along the coast is very nice with other beaches coming into sight. Downside is view in bits blotted with power windmills in the sea.
  • Beautiful golden sands and safe bathing. Towards one end is a area of dunes popular with naturists. The far end nearer the chalk stacks is very family friendly.
  • Sanded beach great for dogs via Kingsgate would suggest you park in captain Digby and then walk down the stairs. There's no disabled access to this beach and no local amenities but a very pleasant and quite beach with lots of beach things to do
  • It's a lovely day out, the sand is nice and soft to walk on but the sea is full of seaweed so maybe not great to swim in. On a hot summer's day the water was warm as it's shallow for at least a mile. It's a lovely walk.
  • Wonderful sea and beach . Not a lot to buy here , only one place to get drinks but really relaxing and beautiful . On a clear day you see the multitude of windmills on the other side of the channel which is really impressive
