Minnis Bay


A long stretch of sand coupled with ample free parking and children’s outdoor play area near by. 

There is plenty of space for water sports such as windsurfing, sailing or kite boarding.  The paddling pool is the perfect location to hunt for crustaceans and a restaurant with a bar, and promenade café. At high tide, a small amount of beach remains, except at spring time when the beach can disappear

Dog ban in place from 1st May until 30th September, dogs not permitted any time.
