The SWCP takes you along this pleasant beach area as you near completion of the 630 mile trek. A very peaceful area (with the nice cafe if you need refreshments) to contemplate your achievement.

A lovely cafe is located on the beach also selling crabbing gear and buckets and spades. Parking is available through national trust. Clean and well kept beach. Lovely views.
