Just about 10-15 mins drive from Tralee, this beach is gorgeous. Stunning views and a great beach to walk, the only downside, if this is one....is that it is quite stony....but that's part of its charm

Awesome place for a walk or swim. Easy access, clean and fun. Short drive from Tralee, Ballyheigue and Ardfert. Waves for surfing can be great when the weather is right.

This is a stunning a huge beach just located outside the jerry town of tralee. On a beautiful day you would think you are on a tropical island. Beautiful soft sand and clear waters. A must visit.

This large long strand is a wonderful place to come to blow the worries from your brain and to enjoy wonderful vistas. Pity not all visiting bin their rubbish.

What an excellent clean beach. Blue flag beach and seven kilometres long. It is a mostly sandy beach.

Uncompromised bliss. Clean unadulterated seascape. Quiet with a healthy buzz around. Heaven. A blue flag beach ideal for families, lovers, friends or soul searching singles.
