There are public toilets near the beach, with wheelchair access. There is also a café, a first aid post, a shop and The Ship Inn Pub providing lots of tables inside and out, for meals overlooking the beach. The beach has a slipway and is a popular sailing destination. There is limited car parking with some spaces for cars displaying disabled stickers
