Lush beach, just so busy during Boardmasters. The queue for the loo was insane, I didn't bother waiting in the end and just held it in to be honest!! We visited one evening once Boardmasters was over, and it was must nicer.

Great parking (early) great facilities. Lovely sandy beach and clean even with dogs allowed. Life guards are brill and have their work cut out with stupid parents not looking after their children. Spent three great days here

Great Beach for surfing wonderful for sand for children but be aware the beach gets very busy with people surfing and body boarding.

Even if you can't surf its a great place to watch the surfers. I was fortunately there to see some of the world championships of surfing which i really enjoyed watching. Beach needs more public toilets.

There isn't much I can say about the place. It was very busy. The lifeguards are continously telling people where is safe to surf or body boarding so very safety conscious. There are food and drinks facilities but can be quite expensive. Toilets and showers...More

Very busy sporty beach, for those less active you can just sit and watch the surfers, the bars/restaurants here are lovely too especially Rick Steins fish and chips
