Sunnyside Beach

Sunnyside Beach is a wonderful picnic and bathing spot within Cullen Bay.

Quite possibly the most beautiful beach! Off the beaten track it does not get crowded and has a serene feel. The soft white sand and beautifully clear waters here are also a major draw. Walking distance from Sandend Holidays.

Inverboyndie Beach

Inverboyndie is a laid-back surfing beach. The enchanting blue waters entice surfers to search for the best waves.
