Although the beach is mainly pebbles at the top (as seen in the picture above), it reveals a large expanse of fine sandy beach when the tide goes out. The towering cliffs on both sides make it feel a more like a cove. A stream runs down through the beach. Another beach owned by the National Trust. Views of Lundy Island.
