Drinkim & Bullum's Bay


The coves of Drinkim (above) and Bullum's Bay lie on the east side of Caldey Island, but unfortunately there is no official public access to these beaches.

Drinkim (or Drinkim Sand) is a sandy beach about 100 yards wide, backed by a small pebble bank and high cliffs of sandstone and limestone. The only way onto the shore is a scramble down a very steep, salebrous path which descends a small gully at the back of the beach. Several ropes are fixed alongside the path and are probably used by the monks. Under dry conditions the sand on the shore makes a squeaky sound when walked on - even more so than the famous Whistling Sands beach of the Llyn Peninsula.

Bullum's Bay lies north of Drinkim and south of Small Ord Point, and is a very picturesque sandy cove flanked by low limestone cliffs and backed by fields.

Swimming is dangerous at these beaches due to strong currents just offshore. The photos were taken an hour before low tide.
