Broadsands is a beautiful long sandy beach in an idyllic rural setting. It's gently sloping gradient makes it a popular choice for families with children or those wishing to distance themselves from amusement arcades. At low tide interesting rock pools are exposed at the southern end of the beach and there is a large area of parkland directly behind the beach, the perfect spot for a game of football or cricket.
The long promenade provides a level walk to both ends of the beach and has brightly colourful beach huts that you can hire out for the day.
Its location makes it an ideal starting point for scenic coastal walks.
