Rest day in Glenbeigh

Enjoy a day doing nothing if that is what you wish. That may be difficult, however, with so many tempting activities so close at hand. Enjoy a beach walk out to the sand spit, an important nature reserve and an International SSI; walk up to the Coomsaharn Lake, fine mountain scenery; take a pony trek for a canter along the beach or a gentle trek through the hills; or enjoy a round of golf at the nearby Dooks golf course with its wonderful setting.
