We love this beach .
It is huge and stunning .
Loads of free parking , brilliant facilities - they have loads of food trucks which even sell vegan food .
Toilets are pretty good for a beach .
Dog friendly too . Our dog loves it .

The only thing against this beach is that it is often quite windy as it is so open which can make the temperature feel lower than it is .

I had cause to unexpectedly spend quite a bit of time in Tralee recently as a family member was in hospital there. This led me out to Banna which is the closest beach to Tralee… only about 20 minutes drive. There is lots of parking, even during the heatwave. The beach is very , very long and wide and has nice hard sand suitable for very long walks. There was a small area of the beach supervised by lifeguards . I saw a lot of people surfing and the waves on a few days were perfect for this. Highly recommend!

This was the 1st beach we set foot on during our 2 week trip in Ireland. It reminded us of some of our South African beaches.

The beach as long & very wide , ideal for walks , a run or playing games as some families were doing.

There is sufficient parking at this blue flag beach in Tralee & the rest rooms are close by . A lovely beach for a day out or a few hours & about 13km from main town centre

I have been visiting this beach for many years. There is none to compare. The beach walk to Barrow and back is approx 4 miles. It can take between 1hr10 mins to 1hr40mins depending on ones pace. It is essential to check that the tides times as
It cannot be walked when it is fully in. The scenery is awsome and it looks different every day.

As it seems all the beaches on the Wild Atlantic Way this one is amazing also. It is huge. The tide was out and the sun tried to peak through the clouds so it was easy to put in a couple of hours.
There was a solitary really good coffee truck at the car park which was nice, as we enjoyed the coffee on our walk. He made us aware that during the summer there are a lot more food trucks but by now it’s normally only 1 or 2. There are toilet facilities but I have seen better, lol. Still functioning all the same.
The water was cold and really refreshing, go in for a swim no matter the weather.
