Thallabawn Beach (Silver Strand / White Strand)

Thallabawn Beach - County Mayo
© Oliver Dixon and licensed for reuse under this Licence

This wild, open stretch of beach is one of the gems of Mayo’s already well represented coast.
Some call it White Strand and others call it Silver Strand (which is the direct translation of Thallabawn).

Well of the beaten track, this huge expanse of sand is a place of great natural beauty. If you are lucky you might spot dolphins here and this is also a great spot for sunsets. Facing west you can watch the sun going down behind the islands of Inishturk, Inishbofin and Clare, a few miles off the coast here.
