Galley Cove (Ballynaule)
The pleasant little crescent of white sand that is Galley Cove lies towards the end of the Mizen Peninsula, the southwesterly tip of Ireland. There are a number of other beaches on this convoluted section of coast, most of which lie in the shelter of deep bays.
Whilst its south-eastwards facing aspect gives Galley Cove a fair amount of shelter it is still a little more exposed to the ocean swells than the other beaches in the area. However, if this ever becomes an issue it is literally a stone’s throw across the dunes to White Strand beach which lies deep within the shelter of Crook Haven.
With its already remote location and a number of other equally wonderful, and possibly more accessible beaches in the immediate area Galley Cove never gets busy.
