Castlebeach Bay is a small beach south of Dale Point. There is roadside parking for about 10 cars on the lane to Dale Fort Field Centre, at the point where the coastal path leaves the road, but this lane is very narrow, and not suitable for wide or long vehicles. It is a five minute walk from the lane to the beach, and the coast path drops down to near beach level providing easy access.
The beach consists of red sandstone pebbles and sand at low tide, and is flanked by low wooded cliffs, with a small wooded valley behind. It tends to become shady towards late afternoon / evening.
The photos were taken 2 hours before low tide.
