Season: autumn

Located at the end of a fine coastal walk round from Sandyhills, Rockcliffe is a sandy beach despite its name, welcoming to dogs throughout the year.  Rough Island sits in the bay and can be accessed via a tidal causeway.  The island is closed in May and June to protect the wildlife that breed at this time.  Parking is by the beach, with a cafe nearby.  Top class walks are the order of the day on this outstanding stretch of coastline.

    To me Rockcliffe Beach represents both calmness and well being on a warm sunny day walking over the sand to Rough Island, and excitement in Nature’s power when the wind is up and the waves are crashing on the rocks.
