whitestrand beachWhite Strand Beach is a lovely stretch of unspoiled beach, another spot not to be missed on your visit to the Ring of Kerry. As you might imagine the sands are white and this beach regularly receives the Blue Flag award but check Blue Flag Beaches for the latest awards. White Strand is located 3 miles west of Cahersiveen Town. There are some great views of Valentia Island and Begnis Island.

From here you could also visit Ballycarbery Castle and Cahergal and Leacanabuaile Forts nearby.

The beach also forms part of the Valentia Harbour and Portmagee Channel Special Area of Conservation (SAC) and the Iveragh Peninsula Special Protection Area (SPA).
