About Sandside Bay

Quality left reef south of harbour in Sandside Bay. Dredging, thick, hollow first section and a long, whackable inside wall. Handles strong SW-W winds.

Car park overlooks the wave. Occasional radioactive particles from Dounreay found on beach, supposedly do not present a significant hazard, providing contact with the sand is avoided!

Look for the nuclear reactor.
