Bigbury Beach

Bigbury is a local beach that is about 45 minutes outside of Plymouth. It's a bit difficult to get to and they have fascist traffic wardens at the car park, but it is an amazing beach.
This is primarily because there is Burgh Island out in the middle of the beach which has a pub and a hotel and cormorants nestling in the rocky crags. The biggest effect of this is that the tide comes in from two directions and there is a Sea Tractor that carrys people to the island.
We went there last night and once the beach barbecue haze had lifted, we had a great time paddling, skimming stones and watching the sunset on South Devon.
