Went or an evenings fossil hunting walk along the Hive Beach and hit luck finding a couple of small ammonites. Stunning sun-set views, until a large wave came in, soaking the wife & I. Highly recommended when its quiet at sunset.

Great food. Sausages available if you don't like fish. It's always crowded and you can't book but worth queuing. Get there at 12 when the coffee drinkers are leaving. Closes at 5pm

Response from louboo40 | Reviewed this property |
It's a £1 per hour and over so many hours and I think over 4-5 hours it becomes cheaper. There is also a National Trust car park (on the left), where if you are a member, you'll be able to park for free.

Hive Beach is dog friendly but you must keep it under control and clean up behind it of course. From 1st June to the end of September restrictions do apply, but dogs are welcome on at least part of the beach all year round... More
