I happened to be searching for some on-line photos of my local beach and came across this site. I live a five minute walk from Portmarnock beach, also known as the Velvet Strand because of its beautiful white sand, stretching for over two miles. It is (in my opinion!) the most stunning beach in Dublin and well worth a visit for anyone staying in the Dublin area. Although the weather can never really compare to that of many American beaches, it is the beach's
rugged beauty which makes it special. Unlike many coastal areas, Portmarnock is very non-touristy and for the most part, the beach is occupied with locals, many just going for a walk with their dogs. In the winter, the waves crashing against the sand and rocks is a sight to behold.
On a historical note, a plane called the Southern Cross took off from the beach in the 1930s to complete the first East-West Atlantic crossing.
