Lovely beach. Sand but some stones. Very shallow so you have to go out a bit to get to swim. Path to walk the length of the beach and into town. Lots of sea life to see.

This beach is off the R673 about 5 km from Ardmore. There is a parking area and an information board in the vicinity of the beach. The tide was in when we visited but it is in a beautiful location and well worth seeking out.

This is a lovely clean, huge expanse of beach. We visited here with our friends and there dogs it was so much, no one around, we had it all to ourselves having afternoon tea. We will definitely be back.

Peace and quiet, very empty for our visits, but might be busy in the season. Still plenty of space and more than enough swimming and exploring space for all. A wonderful experience.

This beach is quiet long and nice for walk. If you like a swim it is a bit stoney but still quiet nice. I enjoy coming here for walk and breathing this lovely air. Nice bars and restaurants around as well.
