Seapoint Beach (Baltray Strand)
© Kieran Campbell and licensed for reuse under this Creative Commons Licence
Seapoint is a long, secluded, mostly sandy beach with some rocks. Its length and width make it a popular spot for walkers who come here to enjoy the sea air in a quiet setting.
The main attraction of the area is golf, with both Seapoint Golf Links and County Louth Golf Club backing the beach.
To the south, the beach ends at the mouth of the river Boyne. At the northern end, the beach is bounded by a crossable stream, before the long, sandy stretch of coastline continues as Termonfeckin Beach. Along the beach, are the remains of a vessel that ran aground here in 1974, a popular spot for taking photographs.
Parking is available at the end of Strand Road leading from Termonfeckin, accessing Termonfeckin Beach just north of the stream. Facilities such as shops, places to eat and places to stay can be found in the town, about a kilometre inshore.
