The waters are shallow and so good for swimming. Beach buffets at each end with public toilets. Good parking with easy access. Sand racing held on the bay several weekends in the summer. Also explore the nearby Fort Hommet at the northern end of the bay and the restored German bunker, open to the public. Dogs are banned from the beach between 1st May and 30th September at the northern end of the bay.

Stay until sunset to see the sun slip into the Atlantic. Dogs are banned from the beach between 1st May and 30th September.
