More Information...

This vast, sandy beach, on Inchydoney Island, a short drive from Clonakilty, is one of the most beautiful to be found along this stretch of the coastline. The pale, pristine sand is backed by dunes and gentle rolling countryside. The beach has two separate sections, divided by the rocky Virgin Mary Headland. The swell here can be excellent and there are good opportunities for surfing. A surf school operates on the beach, which caters for all levels of ability. The beach is also popular with families who come here to play in the sand, picnic and hunt for shells or marine life in the rockpools around the headland. Lifeguards operate here during the summer season and the beach has been awarded Blue Flag status. An award-winning hotel and spa overlooks the beach. The Island of Inchydoney is connected to the mainland by two causeways, and it is easy to drive here from the vibrant town of Clonakilty, where a good range of facilities can be found. Cork city is just over an hours' drive away. The approach road to the car park is quite narrow and during the summer months it can be quite difficult to find a parking spot. Although the beach itself is popular, there is plenty of room for everyone here and it never feels overcrowded.
