The beach is famous as the halfway point on the South West Coast Path. This path is a 630 mile long trail that winds along the rugged coastline of the South West of England. The halfway point is marked by a granite sculpture on the beach. Engraved on this sculpture is a poem called 'Fading Voices'.

The beach is home to a diverse array of marine life, including starfish, crabs and sea anemones.
