As Cookee says, great launching from South Sands.
As the old hotel there is now closed there is plenty of parking, simply pay £5 per day to the Rigby Group, who own the site.
We launched as lowish water and had few great trips during the day with the kids and visitors.
I checked with the guys at the coffee/canoe shack there and left the boat on the beach in from of the South Sands Hotel. Came back in the morning, 4 cigarette butts and their ash and a kids dummy! Not so good
When the tide was in early evening, great paddle boarding with the kids around the rocky areas on the side of the beach
