Whiting Bay is quite an open beach, the type of place surfers might go to or people who are looking for a swim in the waves. On the day we were there young and old were out among the waves with their boards.
As it can be quite windy here do bring your windbreak if you are planning to stay for a while. The beach itself is quite long so it’s good for walking as well as swimming.
There is a decent sized car park and a rough path from it to the soft sand – manageable for buggies but very difficult for wheelchairs’
From Ardmore take the R673 and after a couple of kilometres you will come to a left turn signposted for Whiting Bay.
