An invigorating winter walk. My skin was sand blasted by the strong wind on the walk back too the car from the black rock. Great to be alive.

Banna Strand is a magnificant must see when visiting Tralee. One can walk from Banna to Ballyheigue a beautiful traditional village. If you decide to walk from.Banna the other direction you will walk to Barrow Beach another Iconic must when visiting
