    Bay at the Back of the Ocean Beach Information

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

    At low to 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“.
