Garnish Beach (White Strand)
Tucked just around the craggy headland from the tip of the Beara Peninsula is the pretty little Garnish Beach. With near-white sands, the clear blue of the Atlantic and a backdrop of rolling green countryside this is a place of real beauty, particularly if you are lucky enough to be here when the sun is shining.
Bookmarked by rocky outcrops, the beach looks back into Garnish Bay and to Dursey Island, and is surprisingly sheltered. This makes it generally safe for swimming and the water quality is good enough to have earned the beach a Green Coast Award. That said there is no lifeguard here so some caution is advised.
Despite its remote location Garnish Beach does have a wheelchair accessible toilet along with changing rooms and baby changing facilities.
