A sheltered cove with wide sandy beach. It is home to the Spouting Cave, a natural phenomenon. At low to medium tide, with a good swell and a north westerly breeze, a fountain of spray bursts above the cliff.

The name "Bay at the Back of the Ocean" comes from the translation for "Camas Cuil an t-Saimh". If you wanted to travel West your next stop would be North America.
