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.

The beach is beautiful but the toilet facilities let it down very badly. We arrived about 5pm on one of the warmest days (7th August) this year and the three toilets were disgusting and no longer functional presumably because it had been a busy day.They were also a long way from the beach. I would have expected a state of... More

I have been visiting this beach since I was a child. It is simply beautiful. It tends not to be overcrowded like many other beaches and it's spotlessly clean. Perfect on a windy day in October or a sunny day in July.
