There are no major islands on sheet 82. Prominent coastal features include Ardmore Head, Mine Head, Helvick Head, Dungarvan Harbour, Ballynacourty Point, Ballyvoyle Head, Bunmahon Bay, and Dunabrattin Head.

In 2017, a disused railway, running from Dungarvan to Waterford City, was opened as a major free public amenity – the Waterford Greenway. This is a superb 46km off-road cycling and walking trail featuring stunning mountain and sea views, traversing three tall viaducts, and featuring Ballyvoyle railway tunnel.
