Access to the beach

Access from our storage centre takes you through the dunes to the beach. This means crossing an expanse of soft sand so the initial push to the beach can be quite difficult and needs to be considered when preparing for a visit.   While the beach shelves slightly towards the sea it is relatively flat and sandy for the full length of it.

When the tide is high there can be very little beach to make use of, so it’s always advisable to check the tides before you come. You can do this using The Beach Guide website Opens in a new window.
