Myrtleville village, close to Crosshaven, has a horseshoe shaped beach and it quite popular. Called there in mid-week and a handful of people (the schools had re-opened) were enjoying themselves. It is a small sandy beach and looked quite clean. There is no car park there and you have to find a place on the roads.
But there is no shortage of parking at the popular Bonny Connellan’s Bar/Restaurant which is just up from the beach. Quite a lot of cars there that afternoon – maybe a wedding reception in progress.
