Garwick Bay Beach (Garff)
The sheltered beach at Garwick Bay lies at the end of Garwick Glen, one of the prettiest glens on the Island. The valley at Baldrine has the River Gawne passing through it and joining the sea at the bay.
The beach here is a mix of shingle and rocks backed by woodlands. Although the beach is not a bathing beach as such it is very popular with walkers and for fishing.
Legend has it that during the 18th century the glen was a centre for smuggling and Dirk Haiterick’s Cave behind the beach is named after after a notorious local smuggler.
The beach has no facilities although in Baldrine village you do have a pub with parking.
Garwick Bay Beach is dog friendly and allows dogs all year.
