Amazing beach that stretches forever with sand dunes full of wild grass and flowers

This is the cleanest beach i have ever seen with lots of active sport and recreation on it. Great views of the working fishing boats. Fantastic forest at one end and calm waters.

A truly beautiful beach totally unspoilt and great for walking. One of the best beaches in Wexford and worth a visit. We made friends with a lovely greyhound and his owners had rescued him, a very lucky dog who well deserves to have this fantastic beach on his doorstep.

A beautiful beach that we visited twice on consecutive days - the first we walked to the right towards the tip, the second we turned left towards another tip (didn't make it that far!). We arrived about 10am and there were a handful of people, by the time we left around noon the car park was filling up but still... More

Long walks on a mile long Beach that is clean and unspoilt. It was fantastic. And the fact that Saving Private Ryan movie was filmed this beach makes it more awesome. Worth the trip.

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
