The rock formations here are of special interest, with contorted cliffs representing 1000's of years of tectonic movement. The beach is small consisting of sand and rocks, at high tide the sand is covered leaving only course shingle and large boulders. A very interesting beach to visit at low tide with many nooks and crannies – be careful of the rising tide. Its name comes from the shipwreck of a Spanish Galleon in the late 17th century carrying silver dollars.
