Broadsands Beach

Broadsands is a beautiful beach in an idyllic rural setting. Consisting mainly of sand, it's gently sloping gradient makes it a popular choice for families with children or those wishing to distance themselves from amusement arcades. The red sandy beach rests between rock headlands and provides a safe sheltered area with parkland at the rear. The long promenade with its colourful beach huts provides a level walk to both ends of the beach.  Its location also positions it as an ideal starting point for scenic coastal walks. Cafe, restaurant, shops, and toilets including disabled facilities are all available close by.
