First impressions it’s no Benone Strand, small beach, sand quality just ok, the sea was calm and inviting, so small I had to walk my dog up and down six times. Nevertheless my dog thoroughly enjoyed it, however the backdrop is very picturesque

Well maintained tidal beach but can be busy in the summertime. Shop, hotel and car parks adjacent to the beach. Scenery spectacular.

The drive along the coast to Ballygally is magnificent. The road follows the beaches and cliffs with a view of the ocean and islands off-shore. If I am not mistaken also of the coast of Scotland. Ballgalley is a cute little place to visit and...More

Beautiful view, not much beach area and lots of vegetation had washed up on shore. There is a small bench area to sit and enjoy view.
