A great beach for kitesurfing.


A popular beach for windsurfing.


The area is well known as a great place for sea-bass and thornback rays! NB Sandeel on its own or wrapped in squid is a good tip if you’re after the rays! Mackerel fishing is popular off the nearby rocks and ledges during the summer months  - and you can also expect to catch pollack, wrasse, congers, dogfish and pin whiting. Fishing on all size tides is good here - but with flood tides being the most productive.
