The car park is locked at 9 pm

Parking in this car park is charged at £5 all day, or for just two hours it is £3.

These prices are the same as the Beach Car Park just inland from the Foreshore Car Park on the other side of the road.

You must input your full car registration to park and must display your ticket at all times. 

If you arrive early in the day and are not stopping more than three hours then parking may be cheaper in the Foreshore Car park opposite.

It can get very busy in the peak season but if you venture down and there is no space you car turn around and access the other car parks without a problem. 

There are marked bays which are shown by etched out areas of the grass.
There is no CCTV monitoring your entry so you can drive around and look for a space, or wait for a few minutes in your car while somebody gets an ice-cream or visits the loo!
