This beach is part of a continuous stretch of wide sandy beach from Raven Point to Ballyconigar near Blackwater. It is one of the longest beaches in Ireland if not Europe. The opening sequence of the film"Saving Private Ryan" was filmed here. It is located approximately 10km north east of wexford town in a rural area. The village of Curracloe is located about 1km west of the beach.
