West Bay

A completely tidal bay, West Bay has a long stretch of sand when the tide is out but there is no exposed sand when the tide comes in. When the tide goes out, this provides an excellent opportunity for sandcastle building as the sand is fairly compact.

Combine this with excellent rock pools and it makes an ideal place for children and adults to explore. The pub nearby and the cafe on the promenade (which opens late into the evening) means you can stay a little longer and observe a stunning sunset.
