Excellent, gently shelving beach with easy access to let you bring your car onto the beach. On the day we visited, the sun was shining and the sands were very clean. Lovely way to spend a few hours.

We revisited this lovely village recently and had a great break. The beach is fab - huge and great for a lovely evening stroll, with Hook Lighthouse flashing its light regularly in the distance. As some other reviews have mentioned, cars are allowed onto the beach here, but we didn't find this a problem during our visit; in fact it... More

If you are down this part of the country, its worth going to Duncannon, nice beach & village.Pop into "Juffs" some great chips & take away food.Or "off the hook" for a tasty pizza.

A beautiful small stretch of coast nestled on the perimeter of the small village Duncannon. Scenery wise Duncannon is lovely but after that it does not have much to offer. We visited during July, there was absolutely no entertainment at night in the villages two pubs, very very quite town. The village shops are over priced and very dated. For... More

Beautiful beach but we couldn't relax with our children because there were cars going up and down the beach every few minutes. Our little boy loves playing in the waves then running up the sand to tell us all about it! So this is definitely a drawback of this lovely spot. Lovely village atmosphere, everything you need is within walking... More

A lovely beach ruined by cars. By midday there was no space for kids to play or run around safely. I find in a disgrace that cars are allowed to park here for reasons of safety and aesthetics.

We love the beach at Duncannon. We've returned to it year after year. The fact that you can drive right on to it should be an advantage, but I agree with the reviewer who expresses concern over the safety of her children, fearing that they might be run over. This would be less of a danger if the idiots who... More

Duncannon beach is absolutely beautiful. It is a beautiful beach to have a nice stroll on or to have a nice family day out but we were shocked that cars were allowed to drive onto the beach. I found this really dangerous as you just couldn't relax with the children on the beach they could be run over!!!!!! It is... More
