Dingle and the southwest of Ireland has many amazing beaches, but Inch Beach is a standout, and despite its name, it’s actually three miles long. The beach is a sand spit that stretches out into the bay rather than running along the shoreline, and behind the sand is a row of dunes. Popular for swimming, surfing, kayaking, fishing, and kitesurfing, Inch has lifeguards in the summer months. In winter, enjoy a long, bracing walk, when you might have the beach all to yourself to enjoy the sweeping views of the surrounds of County Kerry.
