clean, relaxing, great view, sometimes a smell of decomposing seaweed, but depends on wind direction. Kids love swimming there its quite safe.

Ballinamona Beach is part of a line of beaches from Silver Strand on edge of Ballycotton Village which connects to Ballinamona which in turn connects to Ardnahinch Beach which then connects to Garryvoe Beach etc etc...on it goes.
If you want to walk from Silver Strand along all the beaches which is few miles (don't know the exact mileage) you might need wellingtons as you will have to cross little rivers that appear from the bogs near the beaches or you can drive down little roads to each individual beach. Depending of time of year or how brave you are when it comes to cold water, you could always take off the shoes and socks and paddle across. All of these beaches are sandy but have something going for them daily. Your walk will change with each days weather, with each ebb and flow of tide and if tide is in full our out quite a distance. You can also go off beach and walk across the edges of local bogs. The fresh air is glorious and the views at any angle are gorgeous over to Ballycotton Islands or village, or at boats on the horizon or local fishing boats and across to Caple Island near Youghal. On your walk bring a picnic and pick a shady spot or pop into Garryvoe Hotel for coffee or Johns shop nearby for icecream or go into any of the local tearooms/cafes on route to beaches. You will see surfers, wind surfers, kite surfers, joggers, dog walkers and you will meet friendly people. East Cork has so much going for it so get out on these beaches and discover it for yourself. I adore every gorgeous shell and amazing coloured stones on these beaches. I have found an amethest, crystals and fossils while walking on Garryvoe beach. It really is an AMAZING spot.....AND its a free amenity.

This was an unspoiled beach which appeared to be clean. Parking was easy and access to the beach was good. I stayed about an hour as was looking around the area, but would go back again
