Glorious golden sands.
The huge pebble bank which lines the nearly three miles of sand was created in a great storm of 1859 and it has been breached several times since – there is concern now as to how much longer it can be rebuilt after each winter’s battering.
There are extra bays , rock pools and a walk-through cave at the southern end of the beach once the tide starts going out.
This blue flag beach is one of the finest and its vastness means it is never busy – in August at low tide, walk far enough and you can still have enough space to yourself to mark out a cricket pitch , tennis court or to play boules! The only time you need to be careful is when kitesurfing and sandyachts arrive.
Famed for its surfing, you can hire equipment and take lessons and there are cafes and toilets at two points along its length. The middle section is dog-free, so everyone can find the bit of beach for them.
Seabirds nest on the southern cliffs and feed on the tide line. Above them above the cliff you will see a line of camper vans as surfers come here from across South Wales and beyond.
