An ideal family beach with the added bonus of the coastguard tower overlooking the beach with an up-to-date first aid/lost children centre unit nearby, lifeguards also patrol the beach between May and September. Although the large beach is shingle, at low tide there is an expanse of sand. To add to the family entertainment, there is a funfair and theme park. The seafront is also home to the award winning 'East Beach Café' by the innovative designer Thomas Heatherwick.
