The beach is very big although the best surf is to be found at the top end, head south to surf in solitude.
Can be tricky paddling out once it gets over 5ft.
Westcoast Boardriders surf school operates here May-Oct, lifeguarded in the summer holidays.
This is a stunning location with easy parking on the beach, complete with cafe, restaurant/bar and shop. There is also accommodation nearby.
With great sand dunes behind you, the Kerry mountains on your left and the Dingle mountains on your right you know you are surfing in one of the most beautiful places in Europe.
An ideal place for beginners or longboarders or just someone who prefers mellow, fun waves rather than death defying rides.
