A picturesque cove and village, with a beach of muddy sand and shingle, sheltered from the prevailing winds provides a safe harbour, ideal for kayakers and boats.
Carreg Sampson, an impressive Neolithic burial chamber, lies west of the beach and a short distance inland. Abercastle is particularly popular with divers, which can lead to congestion if too many cars and trailers are trying to get to the beach.
There is a charge for launching boats which helps pay for village amenities.
If you’re planning to visit, check out the tide times to make sure you’ve plenty of beach to play on and that you don’t get cut off by the incoming tide!
