Perfect place for a day out to relax. Great rock pool when tide is out for swimming etc. Completely changes when tide comes in. Little well stocked shop and deckchairs for hire. Well worth th £2.50 entrance fee.

What an interesting place. Segregated bathing a pool when the tide went out which sadly we didn’t see. Hadn’t realised you could go and swim there too. Very pretty.
