The White Strand beach in Renvyle is a truly splendid and safe sandy beach in North Connemara. Great swimming and surfing can be had and when the tide is out, the beach stretches out majestically and one can walk further on over the black volcanic rocks or across the sheep and rabbit strewn headland onto the smaller seaweed strewn "Women's beach" and eventually to Tully Quay where the local Currach fishermen still fish for crab & lobster. The Quay was built by the British, but it was built in the wrong place for any sort of decent sized boat to moor, still it keeps it's small world charms nonetheless and is a great place (at high tide!) for diving into the sea in the summer time or trying your arm at fishing! A road leads up to Tully Village just before you reach the Quay, or you can go on further to the Gurteen Road (look out for the beautiful Pink and Red cottage on the way) which eventually brings you back to the main road just passed Tully Village.
