Inch Marlow is a series of small bays, some of which are ideal for swimming, some are rougher but make excellent bays for surfing.


Things to Do

The whole coast line here is ideal for Kayaking and the area is known as Kayak Point. For small children, the coastline is dotted with small rock pools, which are great fun. Beach access here is direct and is ideal for disabled visitors.

The rocks here are a favourite for night fishing, often locals and tourists can be found here with hand lines catching fish. During the day this area is also a great diving spot for octopus.

There is no lifeguard on duty. There are no beach amenities however you can get food and drink at Surfer’s Point, a beach bar located right on the beach. They also have a clean water shower to rinse off.
