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. A nature trail runs through the dunes and continues for 5 km to Raven Point, passing through the beautiful peninsula which constitutes Raven Nature Reserve.

Clean and sandy! Fantastic for walking the dog or spending the day with family. Toilets are an experience! I did not think they were pleasant. Car park was quite small but the attendant fit in as many cars as he could.

This is a beach that is dreamed about and good to find it exists and is so picturesque. Miles of Sans and sand dunes with what appears to be an endless beach. Walking on the waters edge contributes to the calmness of the area. The Winning Post shop serves food and there are some indoor activity machines should the weather... More

This is how beaches are in dreams, miles long, golden fine sand, and no one else around for miles. During our visit at peak time, in the height of August, on a warm summers day, the car park was full to capacity, with even more cars queuing up for any potentail future space to free up. So we drove away... More

This is well worth a visit. The beach is huge, beautiful and for those that want to swim, there are lifeguards in the summer season. Be sure to swim between the flags. The main car park has public toilets, but take your own loo roll and soap/wipes. There's a shop/pub/amusement place, for those that want that kind of thing. The... More

Lovely beach, nice and safe for kids. Clean and tidy at all times. There wasn't much sun during our trip but we had some lovely long walks along the strand. Well worth a visit.

This wonderful beach is on my doorstep. It has miles of beautiful golden sand. Plenty of parking, turn right for a trip through the forest and come back along the beach. Only swim between the red/yellow flags this indicates it's safe to swim here & there's a lifeguard on duty 👙There is sand dunes which kids love climbing up &... More

Loved it! We pulled into the well serviced car park, great options for kids and adults alike. What a beach, miles of sparkling clean sands with crystal clear water. We walked along the natural reserve and onto the most beautiful empty beach and we had the most amazing views of Wexford.

My wife read a few reviews on Tripadvisor, and suggested we try this beach as we had a day left of our vacation with no plan. Holy crap, are we glad we did. The beach is wonderful! We hiked westward to the woods and walked a few miles down through them. Rope swings, dunes, perfect temperatures, and almost no people.... More
