This rocky beach has very strong rip currents because it is situated next to the mouth of the river Severn. Best winds are SW and these offer fairly good slalom conditions. The restricted access makes this an unpopular beach and it is definitely not recommended for beginners.

Parking: In a field near the beach
Ideal Wind: SW
