A near-perfect C-curve of sand that faces southeast, Fingal Bay Beach has its own island connected by a sand-spit and is well protected from all but a hefty southeast wind. The spit at the north end which links Fingal Island to the mainland gets decent waves when the sand builds up. The island’s key feature is an imposing lighthouse and there are some stylish cafes a short walk from the water’s edge.
