It's a very nice beach. The Eastern side of the island has cliffs and rocks for a beautiful scenery for taking pictures, walks on the sand, relaxing on the beach...but this water is rough and big waves,an untamed beach for experienced swimmers, also no facilities.

It is always a pleasure to swim in the ocean on my birthday especially as I was born and continue to live in the snowy N.E. of America. This year I selected Foul Bay, which was about a hundred yard walk, but an easier 1/4...More

Loved this beach but the sea was a challenge (very rough with a strong under tow) - certainly not suitable for children! No facilities which meant it was very quiet! Lovely!
