Beautiful flat walk through a pasture and then the beach with cliffs behind. Take off your shoes! Drive down is hairpin turns so agree with other reviews not for the faint hearted

Awesome place to visit, easy flat walk, but check tide times as it may be WAY out. The drive down though is not for the faint hearted.
