A beautiful place ... My wife and I visited on November 1st ... Such views and countryside. Definitely worth the journey from Westport (where we were spending a three day break) ... The entire island is in fact a wonderful place to experience!

great spot to forget about life's troubles for a while and just gaze upon the ocean. Peaceful beach, serene and clean. There was a food wagon there so you can get a nice hot cup of tea or coffee and a snack
