White Bay (Cuan Bán)
This secluded patch of sand and rocks is located on the eastern side of the mouth of Cork Harbour. Despite its proximity to the city White Bay is something of a hidden gem.
Being a little off the beaten track accessing White Bay involves negotiating a steep path down the cliff. However there is a car park and it is well worth the effort.
You should check the tides before you visit the as the beach gets quite small towards high tide. Tucked in behind Roche’s Point the beach is fairly sheltered and is generally safe for swimming. That said, there is no lifeguard service and nothing in the way of amenities here.
Given the beach’s position at the mouth of the harbour it is a great place to watch the ships come and go. The rocks by White Bay are also a good place for fishing.
