Tourist Brochures

Please note that if you are intending to travel on the sand tracks along this coastline, particularly through the winter months, you should be aware of the following:-

  • Tracks often are changed by the rough seas and gale force winds.
  • The beaches are very soft, tides and seas can be very high. It is recommended that you obtain a Tide Time Chart (obtain from the Council Office or Visitor Information Centre)
  • Make sure you have appropriate recovery gear.
  • Let the pressure down in your tyres (recommended PSI is 15)
  • Stay on the marked tracks on the maps provided.
  • If you become bogged it is very difficult to find someone to come and pull you out. It is therefore safer to travel with at least one other vehicle.
  • Phone coverage is often poor so you need to climb to the nearest high point to phone for help.
  • Take the appropriate action to ensure your visit along our coastline is an enjoyable one.  It is a beautiful area and the trip should be a memorable experience for all the right reasons.
