Sandy Mouth Beach

From the National Trust car park, it's a bit of a steep climb down to this secluded beach, but that makes it a good spot to escape the crowds. Sandy at low tide.

Great beach

As noted before this is national trust so free parking if you are a member or £4.50 for the day. It's a short walk down a steep incline past a decent cafe and shop and clean loos. It's a rocky beach at high tide but a fantastic sandy beach at low tide- you get lots of lovely sandy pools which are perfect for toddlers. It's also great for crabbing at low and high tide. Also has life guards. Surf was decent enough for body boarding. Overall great beach and not hugely busy when we were there ( late August)

This is a lovely beach for both children and (novice in our case) surfers. The path down from the car park is steep but worth it. At the bottom you have a bit of a scramble over big pebbles to reach the sand but once there it's great. Watch out for the tide coming in and be ready to move back quickly! The car park charge was £4.50 but that let you stay all day. There is a nice cafe with outdoor seating and clean public loos. We spent all our beach days here.
