The area displays good examples of beach platforms including the present wave-cut platform in the intertidal zone. An older beach platform occurs just above the present beach and extends back to an old cliff line. Deposited on this older platform are raised beach deposits which consist of beach sand and cobbles mixed with rock debris, known locally as ‘head’, deposited as a result of rock movement during the Ice Age.
This site is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Site of Special Scientific Interest and Special Area of Conservation.
