Coral Beach, Sneem, Ring of Kerry

The Coral Beach near Gleesk Pier in Sneem is a rare geological gem and one of only 2 coral beaches in Ireland, the other is near Carraroe in County Galway. 

Unlike the other beaches in Ireland which are made of sand, a coral beach is made from dried and sun-bleached algae. So while we are not suggesting this beach is made of real coral like the Great Barrier Reef it is nonetheless quite unusual for Ireland and worth a visit.

This area is part of the Kerry Geopark.
