Incredible beach, beautiful scenery

Great for walking, especially when the tide is out. There aren't any bins on the beach or around the car park though.

we walked there on a weekend morning. It was cold and windy but great to be out and about. The public toilets were very clean.

My favourite place in Kerry. Now very popular for surfing in the warmer weather. Lovely for a stroll.

After a night in Sean OGs bar it was the perfect place for a Sunday morning stroll. A big beautiful beach with a very interesting history.

I went walking with my best friend daughter on St. Stephen's Day on this beautiful beach, the views are amazing . You can even walk to Ballyheigue when the tide is out. Highly recommend this a must while traveling the dingle peninsula.🍀

Stunning, open space. Several kilometres of great walking. Also great for surfing. Caters for all. Go and take in the fresh air. If walking to Ballyheigue, watch out for the smelly pig farm about half way up the coast. It is not what you would expect in this pristine landscape.

I unfortunately only went just after summer ended. That's why it was rather cold and windy... It's a very clean beach and it was fun to take a walk there.

Went here over the New Year and it was wonderful. A beautiful day with a huge swell in the ocean and loads of surfers taking advantage of this
