Ventry Beach

Ventry Beach Review

Ventry Beach (also known as Ventry Strand) is just southwest of the village of Ceann Trá (Ventry). This lovely stretch of golden sand, said by many to be one of Ireland's most beautiful beaches, runs for 8 km (5 miles) and is part of the Dingle Way walking route. There is a dune system with a small lake, wetlands, and a reed swamp, and abundant wildlife. In July and August it attracts families and swimmers. Amenities: food and drink; parking (no fee); lifeguards; toilets; water sports. Best For : surfing, swimming, walking, windsurfing.
