The beach has white sand, made up from broken shells. The machair runs parallel to the beach and is ideal for walking. It is a haven for wildlife, such as the elusive corncrake and in the summer months the machair is peppered with an assorted variety of wildflowers, including rare orchids. This beach is closed at certain times of the year when the MOD are carrying out trials. Red flags will be flying when there is no access to the beach.
