Location - Freshwater Bay

The towering white cliffs of Tennyson Down shelter this attractive cove. The beach is covered in a mixture of grey flint and chalk pebbles that make a unique sound as the waves rise and fall onto the shore. Explore the rock ledge revealed at low tide, which is great for rock pooling with little ones. A fantastic place to set out on several invigorating walks.
