Dirty and unkempt, dirty and unkempt, dirty and not worth the visit. What else can I say? Dirty... Move on down to Orlock point

Really not the most exciting place in North Down to visit, good for walking dogs and can be a pleasant walk on a nice day but not a great 'seaside' beach.

Not where I would take children on a lovely day. I would be concerned about glass in the sand and the water is not always clean. The presence of uncontrolled dogs was formerly a big turn off but this has been less noticeable recently, although there are still many dogs on the beach
without leads , regardless of the restrictions imposed by the Council.
The view of the Bay and the surrounding area is very impressive - with a lot of thought, work, and
above all, public awareness and respect for others, this beach could be returned to its former glory and become a place to be proud of. Somehow I don't think this will happen. A pity.......
However, it's nice to stroll on the walk way.
