Much bigger than the ladies beach and it goes on forever when the tide is out. If it’s walks you’re into this is the place for you!

This is separated by a cliff with a castle ruin, but when tide is out, you can walk back & forth between. Beautiful!

This beach is named the men beach but I can't imagine any segregation still taking place. It's a nice long and broad beach that you can walk onto right from the city centre main street.

A lovely, sandy beach with wonderful views around the cliffs and up to the ruined castle. The water seemed safe for the children to paddle in as it was not too deep.

Even in winter the fine sand is a pleasure to walk on. It is vast and stretches beyond for a couple of miles until you get to the opening of the Cashen (Feale) River. Here the wild Atlantic crashes against Ireland with power and beauty.
