From the campsite there is a path leading down to an unpatrolled beach (about 200m) that is naturally steep and could be considered unsuitable for someone who is mobility impaired. The path requires a moderate level of fitness and users may encounter hazards such as slopes and unstable or uneven surfaces; users are responsible for their own safety.
