Bay at the Back of the Ocean Beach

Bay at the Back of the Ocean Beach is a sheltered cove with a wide sandy beach. It is home to the Spouting Cave, a natural phenomenon.

At low to the medium tide, with a good swell and a north-westerly breeze, a fountain of spray bursts above the cliff.

The name “Bay at the Back of the Ocean” comes from the translation for “Camas Cuil an t-Saimh“.
