The coastline is beautiful, really picturesque with the rows of beach huts. The middle section is a little boring as it’s just through the middle of a residential area, but the seafront makes up for that.

Very hot day tempered by the fresh coastal breeze. Part of the walk had been re-routed which cut a big corner off the route. If only I had recorded the route as I walked it then I could show exactly where it was... Next time... Easy walk, some lovely sea and country views, and also a little bit of coveting of the lush properties along the route. Dog friendly beach judging by the amount of canines that were evident on and off lead. Some of the walk is literally on the beach so not great for buggies or bikes. I will take photos next time.
