A lovely little bay/beach - hidden away from the main road. We stopped off here for a picnic prior to visiting Cardwell garden centre just down the road. Free car park and lovely clean flat path alongside the beach. The beach was lovely and clean and relatively quiet considering it was such lovely weather, however the carpark filled up quickly....

Visited Lunderson Bay today when we stopped off with a group of cyclists. Fabulous views with excellent facilities for safe walking and cycling. Toilet facilities are also provided.

Clean beach with beautiful views across the water. Great walk along the coastline, all the way to Inverkip, takes about 45 mins to an hour if you make it last!

Pleasant walks extend in either direction along the coast as well as handy for a jaunt across the road to the Cardwell garden centre which has a restaurant.

Spent a lovely week sunbathing at the Bay last week and the coastal walk to Inverkip was just great. It helps when you have toilets close by that are nothing short of immaculate, it makes such a difference. The only down side is the amount of dogs that are allowed on the grass picnic area. Yes the owners clean up... More

Thank you for your comments regarding Lunderston Bay. Was it the site opposite Cardwell Bay Garden Centre you visited, as there are public toilets on site these were installed in 2014? Apologies if you visited outwith our staffing times (generally 10.00 - 17.30 hrs) and they were closed. The Park Attendants are aware of issues regarding dogs and do try... More
