The little beach at Nolton Haven is a nice, sandy and sheltered cove with high cliffs on both sides. Next to the car park is The Mariners Inn open during the day in the summer season for drinks and lunch. Plant fossils are found in large boulders and rocks at the base of the cliffs and, in some places, veins of coal can be seen.
The shallow fall of the beach allows perfect swimming conditions for swimmers and children. during a high tide sea fishermen can be seen on the pebble shore.
