Site Description

The beach is sheltered by massive red sandstone cliffs. The bay is very sheltered and is further protected from the elements by the spectacular Sea Stacks. The Sea Stack are huge sandstone pillars that rise out of the sea a short distance from the beach. There is lots of sea life and the beach is a favorite for many fishermen. This would be an idyllic dive site if it wasn't for the poor visibility. Unless the weather has been calm for a period of time the sea is normally murky.

Wheelchair Access

Wheelchair access is almost impossible-. the pebble beach slopes quite steeply




At the top of the slope leading to the beach


Snacks and drinks are available from the "Ladram Bay Takeaway"
