“A beautiful pebble beach in a seaside town. I love to sit on the beach or take my kayak out for a paddle on the water. You can hire sea kayaks and stand up paddle boards (SUP) on the pebble beach. Walk along a level pathway around the cliffs to Jacob's Ladder beach, which is a mix of sand and shingle. There are plenty of rock pools for the youngsters to explore at low tide. If you have the energy, climb 'Jacob's ladder' a set of wooden steps up to the top, where you can find the beautiful 'Connaught Gardens.' A perfect place to relax and if you're lucky you might hear some live music in this park. ”
