Rosslare Back Strand


Rosslare Back Strand is a sandy and muddy beach near Rosslare, County Wexford, Ireland.

The beach may be an ideal filming location for scenes that need a coastal location with a variety of appearances. Due to its protected position on the back of the Rosslare point, the location has unusual geography. The coast is sandy in parts, covered by dune grass in others, has rocky coastal protection near the tip of the point, and especially during low tides, is silty and extends out into mudflats in some parts. This range gives it a very different feel to the other sandy beaches in the area, even to its neighbours, the Rosslare Point Beach and Rosslare Strand.

The beach and mudflats are frequented by waders and other water birds. A purpose built bird watching hide can be found on the roadside around half way up the coast. A road extends almost the length of the peninsula, stopping at the sandy part of the coast. This road and may give easy access to any part of the coast.
