A lovely beach
Jun 2021 • Family
We were taken here & as it was a hot day left to get a parking space in the not too big car park.
We walked over the sand dunes to get to the beach & it was a lovely surprise to see how vast the beach was.
The sea was surprisingly warm, the tide came in extremely fast.
The beach was lovely & sandy with then a mixture of stones & shells.
We spent a nice afternoon here.
Didn’t see any toilets, luckily we didn’t need one !
we took our rubbish home.

Evening stroll & picnic

We enjoyed a weekend visit to Talacre , as the weather was night on the friday evening when we arrived we enjoyed a picnic tea on the beach . Its a lovely beach and the lighthouse adds a bit more to it to .

Nice enough place but few facilities.
Jun 2021
All the toilets were closed so if you need to go you need to find a tree! Very poor parking facilities available. The pub charges £5 a day for parking. If you park on the beach car park it can get flooded if there is a high tide so beware. The beach acar park also is locked at 9.30. We saw quite a few cars get locked in the evening we went.

Whatever you do do not park in the point view car park the owner/attendant is a complete prat . We parked early on 1 Jun 21 in a bay as best we could make out as lines barely visible and this nutcase came across ranting and raving about not being parked in the bay. However, he cane right up to my open window ignoring totally social distancing so I shouted at him to stop I had to repeat this 3 times then he got really angry and stated he would not let us park her. We went elsewhere but this bloke is a complete lunatic avoid at all costs.

Good old Talacre
May 2021
Didn't stay long this time as the tide was in but such a wonderful place.
Always lovely and friendly people there.
We parked outside The Point and paid £3.50 to park which was very reasonable.
Plenty of access points onto the beach and amenities close by (shops, pubs, restaurants and toilets).

It looked like someone was in the lighthouse lantern this time too (I know it's supposed to be haunted and people claim to have seen the ghostly lighthouse keeper up in the lantern) but despite the tide being in and no boats being by, I know the lighthouse is privately owned and I think it was someone of living status up there as the door was wide open

Lovely beach

Lovely beach. Enjoyed the sand dunes. Lighthouse could do with a lick of paint. Kids really enjoyed their time here.

Point Of Ayr Lighthouse

Lovely little lighthouse! Nice stroll on the beach to get to it. The sea was right out so we could walk around it. Wonder if it ever gets opened up to the public?

Great beach just avoid the cafe car park
Apr 2021 • Family
We come here regularly. Beautiful beach (need to avoid clay at low tide), great chippy, ice-cream etc. Great for dogs & brilliant sand dunes. Just don't park in the car park by the cafe - £5 and you may be unlucky enough to have to deal with the arrogant idiot of a parking attendent that I had the pleasure of meeting today!

Love this place - visited here on a cold afternoon on Sep 26th and the beach was really busy but most people adhered to social distancing and everyone was having fun and it was really nice to see and nobody appeared to bother anyone else and everyone seemed happy.
I've been to this beach quite a few times now and have never seen it as busy as it was on Saturday.
Parking is tough and you can't be too precious about your car (and I certainly wouldn't advise parking on the beach carparks if you drive a lowered car either)/ Also if you park on the beach (rough) carparks, then double-check tide times as it floods and can flood quickly!
Had the pleasure of meeting a beautiful horse and his lovely owner who informed me he was called Alan - as an animal lover, that made my holiday start nicely :)
