Sandwich Bay Beach

Sandwich Bay beach is a long stretch of beach that consists of pebble at the top and then very large sand flats, backed by some sand dunes. As you move from south to north you get more sand and less pebbles,  although the northern end is often used by naturists.

This stretch of coast is a nature reserve.

Access via a toll road, charged at a day rate, making this a little expensive for a short visit.
