The bay takes its name from the legend of Mother Ivy who was a local wise woman and lies just around the coast from Harlyn Bay where you’ll find car parking and facilities (20 mins). Cushioned from the wind by the Merope Rocks, Mother Ivey’s Bay lies in a sheltered location framed by stunning coastal scenery where the soft sandy beach is ideal for both summer sandcastles and romantic winter walks. Due to the lack of facilities here, the bay rarely gets too crowded even on the busiest summer days.
