A lovely sandy beach that has won many awards. I lived near here for many years and have wonderful memories of the beach and swimming in the sea.

A great place to go and chill out. A variety of things to do for all ages. Nice clean beach, great pier, fab bars and restaurants around. Can be as cheap or as experience as you want to make it! Highly recommended.

Lovely place very clean. Had dinner in the Toby Carvery on the seafront. Could do with more toilets in the town really especially along the front.
