Wonderful swim.

Great little sandy beach. Long walk to sea if low tide but worth it. Nice coffee shop nearby. Walk on beach is good but small river to jump over.

Very nice beach and dunes
Sep 2019
Another stop along the Ring of Kerry Route... The beach was very nice (although as a beach, the one at Derrynane was nicer), as were the dunes and vegetation leading to the Ballinskelligs Castle. The kids enjoyed walking around on the beach and to the castle.

Beautiful safe beach
Aug 2020 • Family
Beautiful sandy beach, perfect for families with children.

Lifeguards on duty so very safe for swimming.

Kayaking also available at this location but the opening hours are not those posted on the website as we discovered to our disappointment.

There are 2 car parks and a cafe close to the beach entrance.

The beach was spotless, not an empty can or crisp packet in site.

Gorgeous views, perfect beach for strolling.

We walked across to McCarthy Mòr Castle, a ruined 16th century tower house. The fact that the weather was beautiful only enhanced our enjoyment of this location.

We walked the beach from the Abbey to the Castle. It's very clean and accessible. Would have been nice to spend more time there.

Beautiful, sheltered and good facilities

Lovely beach, sheltered from the preveiling wind by dunes, good parking and toilet facilities and food/refreshments available from the nearby town which you can access from the beach via Cable O'Leary's Pub.

Loved this beach
Aug 2019 • Family
This was my favourite beach in kerry. The water was great for younger kids, the car park was large, and the little shop on the beachfront was very handy for snacks and ice cream.

Beautiful beach on a beautiful day...

We left Valentia island and negotiated the skellig way coastal road and got to the car park which has toilet facilities next to the beach.
Beautiful drive and beautiful beach and a chance to stretch the legs on the most beautiful day.
From here, onto Waterville.

Very nice beach! You are nearly alone there (june) and the view towards the castle and across the bay is stunning.
Perfect for walking but also bathing if the weather permits.
