LITTLE STRAND AND THE STRANGLES BEACH
The Strangles is a large shingle and sand beach which is usually quiet due to the difficult climb down to the beach from the cliffs some 700 feet above.
Reputed to a place where Thomas Hardy courted his first wife Emma.
About a mile south west of Crackington Haven. The climb down to The Strangles beach is difficult and slippery. Little Strand is 100 yards north of, and only accessible from, The Strangles at low tide.
