Seapoint Beach

Seapoint Beach - County Dublin

Seapoint beach sits on the southern shores of Dublin Bay between Blackrock and Monkstown.

The beach here consists of areas of rocks interspersed with sand. Behind the beach is a section of promenade with a few slipways and steps with hand rails that lead into the water at high tide. This makes Seapoint a good spot for swimming although the water can be quite shallow when the rocks are submerged.

The most notable feature of the beach at Seapoint is the Martello Tower. This was part of a network of 28 defensive forts built to protect Dublin from a Napoleonic Invasion in the early 1800s.

Seapoint is also part of a Special Protection Area (SPA) on account of the birdlife that can be seen on the mudflats.

For those able to be flexible with time, a fabulous place to swim for up to about 2 hours either side of high tide
