Banna Strand, Tralee

(4.9/5 based on 300+ reviews on the web)
Enjoy relaxation and recreation at Banna Strand, a long, sandy beach hugging Tralee Bay. Sand dunes run along the entire length of the beach, and there are plenty of activities to enjoy. Try your skills at kite surfing, paragliding, and boogie boarding, or if you prefer a more low-key approach, get out the fishing pole. The current from the Atlantic is not too strong and children can swim safely with supervision from on-site lifeguards. For a bit of history, look for the memorial honoring several men who attempted to land arms for Irish Republicans from a German vessel.

  • we walked there on a weekend morning. It was cold and windy but great to be out and about. The public toilets were very clean. 
  • My favourite place in Kerry. Now very popular for surfing in the warmer weather. Lovely for a stroll. 
  • love banna strand , a nice long walk , very clean beach and the perfect place to find a hiding spot if you want to read a book or need some alone time, one of my favourite places .
