Downderry Beach

Wide beach backed by cliffs. A mixture of sand, shingle and pebbles, with rock pools at low tide. The eastern part is usually quieter as it is more difficult to access.

wind and rain blown...but lovely

We walked and walked along here to get some "air" on the windiest wettest day of half term! We sand blasted all of our features smooth as there was a little too much air with sand! Young & old enjoyed ooing & aaaing at the beautiful pebbles and rock pools, though the kids could barely stand up straight for long! Would DEFINITELY like to return on a day with less "weather" !

Beach and food

Although staying just near Downderry we did not venture here to the last day but wished we had spent longer here - very clean and very long stretch of beach. The best evening meal we had here too at The Blue Plate - and suggest you book or you will have to be seated if room in the conservatory, it was superb - a little pricey and adults only really but really really good quality and plenty of locals eating there which speaks volumes!
