A huge curved bay with a stony high tide shelf and sandy flat beach with odd rocks, marginal SW winds can funnel up the Solway Firth to give short board sailing here due to the funnelling effect of the Cumbrian Lakeland hills and the southern Scottish highlands.
Huge tides on the west coast so at low tide a long walk can be expected, and rough waters at very high tides. On low to mid tides some nice cross onshore clean soft waves can be found with big flat sections in strong winds, Cross onshore flat water blasting and wave sailing can be had. good access, sailing from just south of Allonby on a S-SW or a mile further south at cross Cannonby if more SW-W. Very good quality sailing at times, can get very strong winds.
