Derrible is a stunning bay with something to offer on every tide. The walk down is a little steep and rocky but what awaits you at the end is worth every step. You may even be lucky enough to have the whole beach to yourself, as one of Derrible's greatest attributes is that it is rarely crowded. At low water the bay's gorgeous stretch of pristine sand is revealed.
The water turns aqua blue and is so clear you can make out every shell or stone below. Come high water it is possible to swim right off the landing rocks, across the bay and wade into Derrible Hole, a magnificent open-topped cave with emerald green moss growing up one wall and purple coloured rocks lining the other.
Visitors should be aware that on a rising tide it is possible to be left stranded on the beach when access to the steps is under water. It would be advisable to make your way back to the landing rocks around half tide.
