On Tripadvisor, a visitor from Nottingham recommended Long Sands Beach and said: “Have not visited this part of the UK and we were more than surprised how beautiful the beach was. Soft clean sand.

“Lovely cafes along the beach… surf cafe breakfast was awesome. Lovely atmosphere to the area. Town and beach perfectly sitting side by side. Not touristy at all.”
