“Beautiful beach ruined by sewage stench”
Review of Ballynamona Beach

Ballynamona Beach
Ranked #7 of 19 things to do in Midleton

Stunning place, really is. But the smell of raw sewage is nauseating. Such a shame. Near Shanagarry and Ballycotton , the latter has a great cliff walk and doesn't smell. The former is near Ballymaloe which is just lovely.

This is a really hidden gem. Maybe a little too much seaweed on the beach for some people, but it is so peaceful and remote that really only locals tend to be here. Families catching the last few days before the summer holidays end, really is so pretty.
Looking outwards, Ballycotton Lighthouse stands guard on the mouth of the harbour. Garryvoe is off to the left in the distance.

A lovely place to walk or spend a few hours bathing and swimming.

Parking is limited, bring your own food if planning a stay on the beach - and don't forget to bring your waste with you as there are no facilities for disposing of them on site.
