What a spectacular view from the car parks. The green sea water, the sandy shore, the high cliffs that surround the bay. This is where the people from Achill in the past fished for Basking Sharks and occasionally the sharks still come into the bay. We watched for a while but all we saw were a few boats and 2... More

The drive to this bay is stunning, along cliff tops. The bay is delightful. Golden sandy beach, sheltered from wind, dun trap in good weather. Lifeguards 12-7 in season. Blue flag. Kayaks etc for hire in high season. Some food vans in season. Can walk to top of cliffs - sensible caution advised, especially if bringing children. Would suggest best... More

A hidden gem on the most western tip of the Island. The short drive across the island has some breath taking views and this beautiful beach at the end. A short or a long stay its up to you, but once you get there you won't want to leave. Bring a picnic and a camera and enjoy.

My boyfriend and I spent the day driving around the island and getting out here and there to look around. This was our last stop for the day and my boyfriend loves the drive up to this spot. There was lambs all over the side of the road so you have to pay attention to not hit them but the... More

We cycled there on a hot day in May 2016. There is a reason that it is not on the cycling paths that criss-cross the island - it is the gradient of the hills that lead there. Despite this - and perhaps because of it, we got to spend time on a height looking down at a crystal clear beach... More

This blue flag beach is situated at the very end of the road in Achill, wedged right in under the 700m Croaghaun cliffs. The journey from Dooagh is very scenic, with the very best at the end when you finally reach the beach. This is the best shark fishing area around, with the piers some distance away.

It is the last beach on Achill island. It is beautiful. But I hoped that there will be less people. The beach was full. What I appreciate...is that you can do there beautiful walk. And if you want you can buy some sweets near the beach. Water was cold but so clean.
