This is such an unspoilt beach. Remote, beautiful sand. Often windy but this just adds to its attraction. On Sundays you can see people riding horses on the beach - a wonderful sight.

Gorgeous beach and well worth a visit. Lots of shells and sand dunes to keep the kids happy. Very uncommercial so no shops or restaurants along beach. Great for good surf

Came here on Sunday afternoon to clear the cobwebs. It was a grey and windy day with high waves - and it was just perfect. Looking out over the dingle peninsula and walking on the most beautiful sandy beach - there really is nothing better.
