The beach is within the mouth of the Camel Estuary so is pretty sheltered and has a gently sloping beach making it safe for swimming.
At south the end of the beach is the grassy mound of Braey Hill which is worth a climb for excellent views of the area. At the foot of the hill a little way from the beach is St Enodoc Church or Sinking Neddy as it is sometimes referred to due to it's close relationship with the sea and sand. It is here that the former Poet Laureate, John Betjeman is buried.

5 stars for beautiful beach, zero stars for ugly discrimination

I was charged “Extra” for kitesurfing.
When I questioned this I was told that they didn’t want kitesurfers “Ruining” the beach for others and causing them to phone emergency services when they got in trouble!
I offered to use my own phone if I got into trouble and questioned the practice of charging extra for kiting.
The man was very rude and acted in an ignorant manner.
Surely if you don’t want a certain group to use your facility then you don’t let them in in the first place!?
Is it a private beach? It’s none of their business what the beach users choose to do there.
Is it legal to charge extra for this?
Interesting to be told in a thick Midlands accent that I wasn’t welcome on one of my local beaches.
Extra charges - avoid

Very shocked to learn that as well as the normal charges they add £1.50 a visit if you are a windsurfer or kitesurfer. What an absolute cheek! Nowhere I know of elsewhere does this, you pay to park your car, what difference does it make what you do when you get to the beach. Think I’ll let the media know about this. Greedy so and so’s.
Unimpressed with facilities
They charge £6 to park but there are no bins and they charge for the toilets. Dunes all fenced off. Plenty of better places
