This area of golden sand and undulating dunes protected by beautiful cliffs has an abundance of wild flowers, butterflies and moths. Once an important centre for salmon netting, it has porpoises playing in the ocean while a variety of birds swoop overhead. A National Nature Reserve has been established in the bay and its 200-plus acres have more than 300 species of plants.

The ruined 14th century Kaim of Mathers castle hangs dramatically above the surf.
