Colwell Bay Beach

Colwell Bay beach is sandy and popular with the locals.

The beach itself is gently sloping into the sea which is great for families with kids but be careful of the steps a bit further around the bay which may be slippery.

There are beach huts to rent on the promenade and a lovely beach cafe with a terrace giving great views over the whole bay. The facilities on the beach are good with parking close by and a few shops selling buckets and spades, belly boards, balls, beach shoes and ice creams.
