Lots of seats overlooking the bay,toilets and an ice cream van(Mr Whippy). Lots of walks,but didn't do them as through forest/grassy area. Lovely by beach as low pollen levels 🙂.

Very very busy beach. Beautiful though. There are several walks which is nice, including one which leads to an island. If you don't mind business go.

Very beautiful and quiet little bay on the Solway Riviera with a sand and cockle beach that is good for swimming at high tide. It is part of the Solway Coastal Path. You can walk across the sands to Rough Island at low tide. Beware the passive aggressive southern English lady who runs the vintage shop and garden cafe. She can be very unpleasant when busy. Best to head up to Eats and Treats on the main road.

We found this place after driving the coastline in search of a beach. Ample parking and short walk to the beach itself. The tide was out so our boys spent lots of time searching for crabs. Was really clean and beautiful views would recommend.

We had been told that it was nice here but it was beautiful.
Very nice views across the bay to the island & out to sea.
Nice path up through the woods to get around the bay.

Very quiet village .

We had stopped over in Dalbeattie and had to go to this idyllic, rocky, beach. Initially we thought we would walk to beach but next day discovered it when we were heading out of Dalbeattie. Rather beautiful and realised we should explore Scotland in this Covid time. Looks like this is where ramblers, dog walkers and tourists come for a wander. Half hour parking as you come in free but further in pay car park. Handy loos on left as you enter and looks like campsite on left.

What a beautiful place this is, perfect in every way. It is a while since I visited here. Rough island is just a short walk from Rockcliffe and worth taking time to visit when the tide is out. Beautiful scenery, nice walks and the most glorious of shell beaches. Worth a visit.

The best cakes ever ! A gorgeous little tea room with beautiful garden for the dog. At the far end of Rockcliffe if you are walking from Kippford. Try the apple and walnut cake or the chocolate pound cake delicious .

The Garden Room at Rockcliffe is a beautiful and homely spot to relax: attractive cottage garden, heavenly homemade cakes and local ice cream, interesting shop, and a pleasant welcome. Well-judged quality throughout.
