    Idyllic cove with beautiful white sandy beach
    Amazing beach. Beautiful seascape. There's a wonderful camping ground next to the beach. Plenty of space for everyone, very clean and beautiful soft white sand. A campsite equipped with a toilet block and BBQ stands.Calgary Bay is one of the best camping spots I've seen. It is also a great place for walking. One of the most picturesque place on the island.

    Beautiful beach
    The beach and surroundings are stunning. Crystal clear water, lovely silver sands. Alive with birds and a little piece of paradise. To the one-star reviewers on this site I can only say that you are clearly looking for the wrong things in life if you think the ice cream parlour not being open is a tragedy.

    A Beautiful Place
    Very beautiful, white sand and blue sea. Its a great place for a walk. There is a small cafe check opening times it's an interesting cabin. Car parking is available some for a donation it's not huge but we had no trouble. There are toilets just down the road a little bit. It's a lovely spot.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A rather plain bay, sand, good for kids, stopped off here for lunch on the way around the island, a little exposed in wilder weather

Gorgeous beach for walking the dogs. Great to give them a run. Nice and clean beach and cute little food shack in the car park. Imagine it gets very busy in the summer.

Nice beach with golden sands and very clear water. Parking is pretty limited and there is a well maintained toilet block a few hundred yards back.

Absolutely one of the nicest beaches I've ever seen. The children loved swimming in the sea and it was even quite warm !!

Amazing place. Weather was wild when we visited but can’t let that stop you. Wrap up warm and big jacket’s and had a great adventure. Amazing views so can only imagine what it’s like it the summer
