This is Coney Beach
The beach is well sheltered from westerly winds by the harbour wall and pier, with large swells and strong westerlys the right hand side of the beach is a sure bet as other beaches will be blown out.
It is a great beach for beginners and works best at mid to high tide, best avoided at low due to strong rips heading towards the rocks at the other end of the beach. The waves tend to drop quickly on the dropping tide. The beach is patroled by the RNLI which makes this a great place for learning safely.
Not the best of write up’s in the Stormrider guide but a good wave can be had and it does work well on a large swell and with all the news about fairgrounds at present I would rather ride the waves !
