The beach is around a mile from the quay and can be reached by road, or by a narrow gauge railway which runs from the quay during the main holiday periods, or if you fancy a leg stretch with a good view you can walk along the causeway which runs parallel to the main shipping channel.
The walk is firm under foot up-to the beach, so its a nice stroll even out of season, giving you the opportunity to admire the many colourful boats.
At the beach you will find a cafe, toilets and a large car park. The beach is very popular but watch the tides as it is possible to get stranded on a sand bank. There is a mature pine wood running down to the beach which is interesting to explore on a summers day.
There is a pitch and putt, a canoeing lake and also refreshments close to the beach. The village itself has some lovely shops, good restaurants, pubs and inns. Or dine al fresco with a good choice of delis, takeaways, sea food and of course fish and chips.
