We want you to enjoy your holiday, and be aware that there are specific dangers with soft sand and mud, not to mention the sea itself. We ask that you supervise children at all times and observe the safety signs on the seafront and the beach.
Remember that it is dangerous to approach the water at low tide and any inflatable craft you use in the water should be tethered when used in the channel.
When parking on the beach always check the time and height of the tide (vehicles can and do get stuck in the mud) and drivers are required to obey the 15mph speed limit at all times.
Quad bikes and other motorised bikes are not permitted on the beach and all vehicles are prohibited from entering the sand dunes.
