Cloughey Bay Beach

Cloughey has one of the best beaches in the Ards Peninsula boasting a wide sweep of sand with miles of sand dunes and a castle to explore!

The bay faces South East with a long spit of stones providing protection from the Irish Sea swell.

Cloughey Bay due to the size and protection is popular for windsurfing, water-skiing, kitesurfing and kite buggies.

The bay is large and car parking with toilets exist.
