The largest of the beaches on the west of the Rhins. It can also have good swell with the same swell conditions needed as Labrax. If looking for surf check the Magic Seaweed forecast for Machrihanish. If a decent NW swell can squeeze between the Mull of Kintyre and Northern Ireland this is where it is best.
Follow signs for Port Patrick. Just before the village turn right onto the b738, after a couple of miles turn off left signposted for Killantringham light house. Take the narrow access road to the car park. Parking is provided at the southerly end of the beach. You have to walk down to beach done a narrow slipped single track path.
Only at mid to low tide. Access is cut off at high tide.
Do not venture out on a high or flooding tide – you will get cut off and end up on rocks! Loads of rips and rocks on this beach for experienced users only.
