When I visited this beach they had signs across it that the water was polluted. You weren't supposed to swim in it. Such a shame to have such a lovely beach not looked after.

Huge beach with great facilities. Pubs and cafes close by. Very popular but lots of room for everyone. Take care driving through the village on busy days.

Visited here during a sunny afternoon. The waters are shallow and safe for kids. The beach is clean and very suitable for kids.

A fabulously long beach with very fine, soft sand. You can take a long walk across Duncannon Beach and back to walk off all the delicious food and Guinness available in the area!
