Cloughey Bay Beach

The village's sandy beach makes a superb spot to spend a sunny day; paddling, playing tennis and in the playpark with the little ones. It is easily accessed by visitors of all ages and levels of mobility thanks to recently installed boardwalks, accessed at the northern and southern ends of the beach. Visitors can reach the shoreline without trampling the dunes or disturbing their rare and valuable plant life. A decked rest area provides the perfect vantage point to enjoy breathtaking views over the coast. The boardwalk is also popular with walkers.

There is a diverse and sensitive environment at Cloughey, in particular at the sand dunes, which are a Designated Area of Special Scientific Interest.

The south end of Cloughey beach is an excellent spot for birdwatching. Winter is the best time to see wading birds as most of them migrate to northern breeding grounds in the summer. Serious birdwatchers often call in at Cloughey and about two years ago a rare American visitor, the white-rumped sandpiper, was spotted.

After a walk along the beach in Cloughey, you can pop into Eden Pottery for a cup of coffee and pick up some locally crafted pottery items. They are dog friendly.
