A sand and shingle bay surrounded by steep unstable Old Red Sandstone cliffs. The bay itself is WSW facing and therefore takes the brunt of the stormy seas. Its difficult access, strong rips, submerged outcrops, unpredictable currents and sometimes powerful waves make this spot very unpopular for windsurfing, but fairly popular with surfers. There are no amentities at the beach, but the nearby village of Dale offers shops and accomodation. Limited parking is available along the roadside, from where it is a 10 minute walk along the coast path to the beach.
