Marcross Beach is reached along a private road from Marcross village. An attended car park is situated on the clifftop along with a small building housing toilets and a shop selling drinks and sweets. The blue lias cliffs here are very unstable, and there are sheer drops to the shore. The beach is mostly rocks, but with sandy areas to the west. Dogs are allowed at all times. A buoy marking a sandbank about 400 yards offshore is fitted with a bell which clangs if there's any swell. This can be irritating on sunny days and quite eerie at night.
Behind the beach, a footpath follows the wooded Cwm Marcross valley to Marcross village, which has a pub.
