The sandy beach next to the slipway is a fine spot to anticipate a trip across to the Abbey and the beaches on Iona. As well as being the ferry access point from Mull to Iona, you can take a boat trip to Staffa from here. There is history too, with the now disused quarry over the hill a worthwhile short hike and a shop, cafe and restaurant all to hand. So although Fionnphort is generally a place to leave from, it’s no hardship to stay a while and enjoy the views.
