Season: autumn

Located at the end of a fine coastal walk round from Sandyhills, Rockcliffe is a sandy beach, 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 and Rockcliffe has a cafe and toilets nearby.  Top class walks are the order of the day on this outstanding stretch of coastline.
