Coves Haven Beach (Holy Island)
© Richard Webb and licensed for reuse under this Creative Commons Licence
This remote and little known sandy beach is located on the far (northern) side of Holy Island. Backed by high sand dunes there are steep cliffs at the eastern end, both of which provide shelter from the wind.
As the tide goes out the sand gives way to rocks and there are plenty of rock pools to explore.
Type of beach
Dogs friendly beach?
Responsible dog owners are welcome on the reserve but dogs must be kept on a lead or at heel at all times (even on the beaches) to avoid disturbance to our birds and grazing livestock. These byelaws help protect the reserve.
