Barleycove is said to be one of the best beaches in West Cork, if not Ireland. The beach itself has been designated as a Special Area of Conservation by the European Union, due to the variety of wildlife and interesting habitats present in the sand dune system. There is an interesting floating bridge in place to manage visitor access and reduce the impact on natural surroundings.

The area surrounding Barleycove is one of natural beauty and is very popular during the summer months. Barleycove has a par 3 golf course.
