Fantastic beach

Great place for a bracing walk on a fine windy day - a walk to the Black Rock and back (from the car park) sets you up for the day

Beautiful beach even though it was just 12 degrees the sun shone and the kids loved it. I will definitely be returning to this beach in the future.

Banna is beautiful, long sand beach, great for walking also it's windy for kitesurfing and if there is no wind - there are pretty good waves for surfing! You can walk Banna and come back behind the sand dunes or just have a lovely walk with a mountain view! Enjoy!

This beach is a must for visitors if you enjoy a brisk walk & loads of fresh air. You can walk for miles & miles, clear the cobwebs! A sunny day makes it all the more beautiful as the mountains can be seen clearly in the background.
