4 - Perfect escape from two beginning surfers. Waves were less than 1m but it did not matter. Constant breeze keeps it cool

Scenic and wide beach with huge drawings in low tide to really open up the entire Oceanside to walking and sports. Surfing is perfect for beginners. Reminds me of hiidden surf spots in Southern California during the 80s. Dogs running everywhere made it feel very friendly. Highly recommend as an alternative to congested beaches.
5 - ticks all the boxes for a memorable day at the beach....
This is a stunningly beautiful beach....on a coastline where there are any number of great beaches....access is via steepish but short path or wooden steps....the multicoloured cliffs are what makes it so picturesque.....there's a couple of surfschools there.....which tell you that sea swimming without some bouyant device would be dodgy....when we were there even surfers did not go beyond the outer waves....in season there's some beach cafes which are ok for snacks & the usual beverages....but the big car park implies that it probably gets pretty busy in the summer....
