The dunes are currently the subject of an active conservation policy by Wexford County Council ensuring that this marvellous amenity and the plant and wildlife it contains, will be preserved for future generations.

Make sure you know how to get there as it's difficult to find and not signposted from any main road. Once there, it's miles of sandy beach flanked by the sea and a sandbank. It either turns you on or is doesn't - depends how much you love long sandy beaches. There's not too much else to say.

This is a beautiful beach anytime of the year. We recently went in December and had long crisp walks on the beach with the dogs. It was lovely to see the sun rising with horses galloping along the water front. Spectacular any time of the year

I just love this beach. I’d probably rate this the nicest beach in the country. It goes on for miles. There’s nothing like walking along the shore to refresh the soul. Even in winter, I love it. How someone can describe it as “to packed” is beyond me. Yes, it’s busy near the car park, but it goes on for... More

Well, as australians, we see lots of beaches like this, and quite frankly it made us feel homesick....we had a long long walk along the beach, it's sandy, and even n a busy day you'd have plenty of space. Looks safe, too.

A beautiful place for swimming, sunbathing or just a walk on the strand. The long stretch of golden sand provides plenty of space for fun and games. Difficult to believe that this peaceful place was the setting for opening scenes of Saving Private Ryan. On a hot sunny day you could be in the Bahamas.

Fantastic long sandy beach. Spent a week in a cottage by the beach. Ballinesker car park is quieter than White Gap. Children (16 and 9) had a great time at the Surf School.
