Soft sand nestles to the rear of the beach, there is also plenty to the east among the sand dunes. Moreover, if its a bit breezy you can head into the dunes to the east Literally miles of pathways with various entry points back on to the beach. Keep your eyes out for the lizards that call the dunes home. To the west are the pine forests complete with rare Red Squirrels.
