this is a short walk from the Carylon Bay camp site and is well worth the walk, the beach is great for kids, on site there is a Cafe/Bar and they have music at night.

Attempted to come here for a nice chill out. However, typical English weather, it started to rain. I would certainly recommend coming to this beach as I believe they have an open bar. I 'am more than sure this is a very popular beach, but...More
