A large proportion of the coast here is backed by a small sand dune system and in places man-made sea defences. The dunes lead to a gentle shingle slope which gives way to extensive inter-tidal sand flats. This area is heavily used for various recreational activities including angling, cycling, windsurfing and sea canoeing.
The beach is good for windsurfing and kite-surfing with SW winds being virtually cross-shore and NW winds onshore. The water is usually fairly flat although the chop can build up to provide some bump and jump conditions. Tidal currents can be strong. Kite-buggying on the sands at low tide is good too.
Parking and all the amenities expected of a tourist beach can be found nearby.
