Fabulous little beach, been once before on the cliff train, this time we drove down a very steep hill. Plenty of space, lovely still sea, sun, water sports and a few little shops for food etc. Stunning location, well worth the trip.

beaches are pretty and you are spoiled for choice for walks and activities while you are here. Impressive cliff railway and car park at the bottom so you can choose how to get to them
