Whether heading north or south, at the settlement of Dunmore, turn, go up the small hill past the white Catholic church (a wonderful landmark and worth a visit) and continue through the settlement on the hard sand road until you get to the beach. If you get here, or points further south, do stop at Mr. Wallace’s Straw Works on the QH just a couple hundred yards south. His is the only straw works available south of Clarence Town and his work is wonderful. We always stop and buy something. And during our 2017 visit, he has been joined by a young man by the name of Carlo Macintosh who I believe is a relation. Please support them so that this this great island cultural and craft heritage may continue.
