Important! Tide times are for the nearest measurement point and may not be accurate for this location. You should not rely on these times for anything other than a broad indication of when the tide will be at its highest or lowest.

In particular, these tide times are not suitable for navigational use. Accurate tide forecasts require complex calculations and detailed local information. If you intend to engage in any activity for which tidal information is important for safety reasons (including sailing, powerboating, diving, and surfing) then you should obtain professional data.

A quite secluded beachsurrounded by a nature reserve (SSSI). The pier has some historical background in that barges that carried clay for local pottery unloaded at this point. The beach itself is sheltered and bathing is safe in the shallow waters.
