  • Lovely walk to the beach. Great bird watching opportunity if you're interested. There's a hide along the walk. Easy access, flat walk and friendly for wheels. Dog friendly too. Donation for parking. Public toilets near the car park.
  • The coffee needs a rethink. It's not strong enough and I'd prefer a larger amount. It's almost as if whoever bought and set up the espresso machine doesn't like coffee. Great selection of cakes!
