OK, there is no sand at "Sandy cove" however is a nice sheltered cove on the coast, good rocks to climb and explore, nice little cave tunnel and if you go at low tide you can take the "secret" path along the shoreline from Lee bay. However, there are no toilets or food/drink facilities on this beach. Winter time it sees no sun due to it being too low in the sky and the beach facing North.

Nice little spot for a swim but stay close as there are strong currents further out. Best at high tide to swim. At low tide interesting rocks to explore.

The beach is not very sandy but the place is beautiful. Amazing views and the costal path.

Surprisingly not as sandy as I would have first been led to believe. Maybe with a few million years of coastal erosion and the breaking of rocks that happens over time, the beach may one day live up to its name. If anything its worth a visit just to see how far the process has come along. I reckon by the year 1002032 it will be a sandy beach. That said the water level may not be the same so sandy cove may either become Rocky reef… or some mountainous peak. Time will tell I guess.

Great little quiet cove, good for a swim, and a sheltered spot to sit and read a book
