White Strand Beach

This small sand and shingle beach set between rocky outcrops lies on the west coast of the Isle of Man, just under two miles north of Peel.
The beach is backed by grass-covered cliffs and hills, behind which lie fields along which the coastal path runs.
Come here to appreciate the remote beauty of this part of the island, or maybe for a bit of bird spotting- this stretch of the Manx coastline provides breeding and wintering grounds for a wide variety of birds. On clear days the mountains of County Antrim may be visible across the Irish Sea. Apart from a small car park a few minutes’ walk from the beach there are no facilities here.
Visitors to the area may enjoy a trip to see the ruins of 11th century Peel Castle.
