Overall I disagree with paying to access a public beach . However the story boards on the way in , access to view the wedding venue ( stunning by the way ) the tunnel upkeep etc is all worth the entrance fee of £2.50 ....More

We spent a lovely few hours here and really enjoyed it. The beaches are privately owned and hence the entry charge which I thought was very reasonable. The staff are were very friendly, particularly the lady on reception. There are panels along some of the...More
