Broadsands Beach

Broadsands is a beautiful beach in an idyllic rural setting. Consisting mainly of sand with some rock pools, 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 and pitch and putt golf. The long promenade with its colourful beach huts provides a level walk to both ends of the beach. Its location is an ideal starting point for scenic coastal walks.
