Water samples are not taken at this beach because it has not been designated as a bathing water and there is no voluntary sampling. You can use the beach map to find the closest beach that is tested for water quality.
High levels of bacteria in the water can indicate pollution from sewage treatment works or polluted rain water draining from the land. Where does pollution comes from and how can you help?
Water quality can be reduced for up to 72 hours after heavy rain. Look out for temporary signs at the beach and on our website.

At the end of every bathing season the water quality is classified as either-
Excellent – the highest classification meaning the water is cleanest
Good – generally good water quality
Sufficient – meets minimum standards
Poor – You are advised not to swim. The beach will stay open and an action plan should be in place to improve the water quality.
These new European standards are based on the latest health advice and are roughly twice as tough as the old ones. They use the latest four years of data, rather than a single year. Find out how they compare.
Our volunteers have been surveying rubbish on UK beaches for over 20 years. In that time shoreline litter had more than doubled and plastic has gone up by 180%!
MCS beach cleans are run all year round with our flagship event 'Great British Beach Clean' in September.
Volunteers record the litter they find - we use this information to help Governments and industry understand how to stop the rubbish getting there in the first place. We also promote behaviour change among the public using the data collected.
Take your rubbish home - don’t try and cram more stuff into already overflowing beach bins
Don’t leave litter behind - take it away and recycle it
Only put the 3P's down the loo - Pee, Poo and Paper - everything else goes in the bin!
You never know what kinds of wildife you'll come
across at the beach. We're interested in what you find - especially
if you come across jellyfish, basking sharks or turtles. Tell
us what you find.
Note: This page shows reports of sightings of jellyfish, basking sharks and turtles ONLY, as MCS holds national databases for these species. Don't be alarmed if it looks like there are lots of jellyfish in the area, they are fascinating creatures. We always advise "look but don't touch".
