Looking back along the beach towards start.
There is parking for a few cars at the start. Walk down the small road to the beach. The beach provides access to Dunany Point at low tide. It is also possible to walk along the edge of the cliff. At a few points it is possible to scramble from beach to the top of the cliff. Much of the land above Dunany Point appears to farmed - it was in clover when we were there.
On the OSI 1:50k map there is a feature known as the Mad Chair of Dunany, shown in the picture. According to one website sitting on the chair was supposed to cure insanity.
Dunany Point is used by fishermen and on the occasion we were present, the only other person we saw on the beach had a rod.
Dunany Point has an enormous panorama. Part of it includes the Cooley Peninsula.
One of the main attractions for a walker of Dunany Point are the huge views of the Cooleys and the Mournes.
