We love coming down to South Beach for a picnic on a sunny day but it would be advisable not to stick around after dark as the place has a feel about it once the sun goes down.

A lovely quiet beach for a walk. A little cool still for us to swim but lovely and clean, as well as amazing views as you walk. Close to town, although we had a car for our stay. Lots of free parking.

Nice beach not too busy. Access is by car. We were there on a really warm day - 28 deg C. Had a quick swim because the sea was still cold for us.

Lovely beach, nice cafe and quite good parking. Very busy in the summer. If you take your dog make sure you keep them on the leash until you get to the "dog beach" section- rangers very active!!!
