I am sure the beach width is tide dependent, however when we arrived mid-morning it was very narrow and we had to keep moving further towards the tree line. At one point a huge wave swept over and soaked us and all our stuff; totally...More

Heavenly beach not overly crowded, sand good, shade good if required and good spots to get sun. Easy to swim. Good for families, and quietly away from Mullins. You can easily walk round in 15 mins max for a drink etc.... The only issue is...More

We stayed close by and this was our 'go-to' beach, and we were very happy about it. It's a more quiet beach, clean sand, , plenty of space which large trees giving shade, if you want to. There is no parking and no bars or...More

We stayed just up the hill from Gibbes and went down for a sunset swim every night. It is a great spot to swim/have a drink/watch a sunset. It has good access but is a more secluded option than Mullins.

Such a lovely beach with white sands with plenty of palm trees to sit under. The sea is clear blue, calm and not wavey. The only down is there is a sudden drop in the sea bed. It's a must visit.

Totally worth the little bit of figuring out it takes to get here. It's a quiet beach, not a lot of people around, and beautiful calm water ideal for swimming. If your idea of paradise is a nice quiet beach mostly to yourself, this place...More

Worth walking ten minutes south from Mullins to find your own strip of empty sand. Wonderful coloured sea, empty sand and interesting little small white crabs make this an private and peaceful place to pause and unwind. Theres sometimes a steep shelf in the sand...More
