    Sandhead Beach Information

    Sandhead beach is a sandy beach 1 mile in length alongside the small village of Sandhead. As the tide goes out the beach can extend to nearer 3 miles. Good safe swimming but as the water can shallow you may have a long walk to get to sufficient depth to actually swim.

    We have no current information on dog restrictions for Sandhead Beach.
