Duncans is a rough beach: a few years ago I walked it, but was warned to be careful, and rightly. It’s remote enough, with few houses, and a fishing village that’s just a few dilapidated shacks. There’s poverty here, and the life of a fisherman must be precarious, with the seas overfished and the weather always a threat. I swam it too, on a day when the swell was choppy, but what I love about this place it the light. There’s a silvery ethereal quality to it, and you feel like you’re on the edge of the world…
