Broughton Bay. This SW facing beach provides very limited sailing conditions compared to many other beaches in the same region. It is not possible to sail at low tide and at high tide if the sea is rough, sailing becomes very difficult. If the sea is calmer then intermediate sailors might enjoy the challenge, but never sail alone here and always carry flares and spare kit! The main dangers of this beach are powerful waves which, combined with strong tides can create cross-shore movement which is difficult to handle. A popular beach with non-local windsurfers – one such visitor having got into trouble several years ago was adrift for 3 hours before being winched to safety by a Sea King helicopter!
