The smaller of the two main beaches at Thurlestone, it lies next to the golf course, to the northwest of the main Thurlestone Sands. The beach consists of coarse sand is quite well sheltered by the headland of Warren Point.

Access is easy from the large car park nearby, toilets are sited opposite the car park. All other facilities are to be found in Thurlestone village. The beach is often less crowded than its neighbouring beaches. Rock pools uncovered at low water may interest the younger members of your group.

Dogs are permitted all year round.
