This bay and its number of less accessible coves have fine golden sand. It is north-west facing and backed by low cliffs and sand dunes. At low tide, a stream runs across the beach and there are many rock pools to explore and one so large it functions as a natural swimming pool. This is said to be the site of the first ever surf session in the UK (around 1950) and is still popular with surfers of an intermediate level. There is a slipway for kayaks and other small boats to use. The beach is Marine Conservation Society Recommended.
