Car parking on the beach, operated by the National Trust, currently £4.50 per day for parking. Has Tea shop, toilets and shower at east end of beach. Half a mile of beach breaks, park level with the spot that takes your fancy. Don't park lower than the high tide line!
Great spot if you like to get out of your car and straight into the surf. Can get crowded in the summer. Lovely sandy bottom, which is how I like my bottoms!
Great spot, something different as long as you don't mind changing and loading the car on the sand.
