Dancing Ledge Beach

Dancing Ledge is not so much a beach but an old quarry floor. There are no beaches on this stretch of coastline but this is popular as you can get down to sea level. Some good swimming from the rocks but care needs to be taken.

No facilities available.

We have no current information on dog restrictions for Dancing Ledge Beach.
