A very interesting beach with heaps of history. The beach has black sand framed by rugged slate cliffs. Access is good with a car park right on the beach front. To the north of the beach is an area where slate was quarried around a large hole which, when the quarry had finished, the rock that lay between the sea and the disused quarry was blown up and it became a rather beautiful blue lagoon. Lining the path leading to the blue lagoon are the ruins of the old quarry workers houses. Surf can be good at low tide. There are toilets and in season an ice cream van.
