Freshwater East beach

A wide bay of golden sand backed by dunes with a stream running through the beach at its southern end.

At low tide, the sea reveals plenty of sand for all those ball games without bothering the neighbours and the low cliffs at the eastern end provide some nice private ‘bays’.

If you’re planning to visit, check out the tide times to make sure you’ve plenty of beach to play on and that you don’t get cut off by the incoming tide!
