The Prom Beach
- This beach is just East of the village on the Galway road. This beach consitantly gets the European Blue flag for good water quality. There are 2 small streams running down the beach but you are advised not to drink the water. It's safe for swimming provided the sea is not rough as there are no dangerous currents and there is a lifeguard on duty during the summer months. Whether the weather is good or not take a walk along the beach and shore line. The chilldren love this walk with all of the unusual stones and interesting rock pools. You can walk West along the shore as far as the old pier or the new pier if you are willing to wade across the river.
