In the east of the coastal area is low and sandy, except in a few places where it crops out in headlands; two of the country's main resorts, Arklow and Bray are along this coast. Central Wicklow is a mass of domed granite mountains, penetrated by deep glens and wooded valleys; it contains some of the finest scenery in Ireland. To the west, the mountains give way to gentler country on the edge of the central plain. In Wicklow it is possible to forget about the hustle & bustle of everyday life and just relax. The county is rich in history and culture, with five heritage gardens and many archaeological and historical remains. Wicklow County is famous for her mountains and beaches as well as the walking & cycling possibilities that she offers.
