Site summary
This coastal strip site, designated as a Special Protection Area for its significance for wintering and migrant Greater Sand Plovers is much impacted by development, but remains of importance both for the plover and for migrant herons and waders. It is also among the few sites away from Kleides Islands to regularly host Audouin's Gulls.
