This small attractive sandy beach is situated just to the west of Dodman Point on the Roseland Peninsula.
Access is via a steep, narrow lane parking at the National Trust. A 10-minute walk across the fields to reach the beach is enough to ensure that the beach remains fairly quiet even at the peak of the summer. There are no facilities and although the beach is considered safe for swimmers care should be taken as there is no lifeguards on duty.
