  • We had a lovely swim here on Tuesday 19th August .. water is crystal clear. The sand is so unusual ... actually tiny bits of shell and coral. Lovely easy access to the beach and the water. Perfect...

  • Take your time to drive along this road as the scenery is so beautiful! There are some parking spots, so it is possible to stop for a dip, or some pictures.

  • This is an interesting beach where sand consists mostly of remains of coralline seaweeds, sponge skeletons, snail- and sea-shells. Very unusual and a great fun for both adults and children. The water....  more

  • The photographs of the beach the day I went in its less than ideal beach conditions really don’t do the beach justice, but on a beautiful day, the sea is a clear blue azure colour with beautiful white sands. Photographs I saw of other reviews on Google Maps made the beach look it could be in a tropical destination. The beach is known as a Blueway, a beach well-suited to watersports in a beautiful setting. Popular activities at Mannin Bay are snorkeling and kayaking trails, suitable for a range of abilities. If you don’t have your own equipment, there are a number of local companies that can be contacted for guiding, equipment hire, and advice for your trip. There is a small car park available at the beach.
  • Lovely spot to view, small area to park along road,beach isn't sand its shingle, & water was full of rush/grass like plant which made it hard to swim in certain areas.
  • Great beach 🏖️ with crystal clear water
  • I went there a few years back and my lasting memories were nice to look at but because there's so much rotting seaweed there's also millions of flies
  • Beautiful quiet beach. The colour of the sand is fabulous.
