Public toilets available.
Very safe bathing at most states of the tide with the water receding across the flat sandy lower beach and staying very shallow for some distance. At high tide the water reaches the steeply sloping shingle upper beach providing a good location for competent swimmers and the opportunity to dive from rocks surrounding the derelict jetty and Martello Tower.
A café provides for all requirements.
The availability of parking makes this a popular beach but low tides during the late morning to mid-afternoon ensure that there is plenty of room for everybody. Space is much more restricted at high tide.
