Heading the peninsula Whitesands is the best beach in the area but it does get very crowded in the summer. A mile long Westerly facing sandy beach looking out towards Ramsey Island. Facilities include toilets, shop, café, surf school, surf hire and deck chair hire. Lifeguards patrol the beach in season. There is a large car park but be warned it does fill up very quickly at the height of the summer. Good access for boat launching. An excellent and safe surf beach. No dogs allowed May to September.
