Did you know that the name “Tramore” actually means Big Strand? The seaside resort is definitely just that with its 5km long beaches. Tramore Bay is actually broken up by the peninsula, where the promenade and strand can then be found on the other side. While the weather is not always amazing in Ireland, choose to come during the right time of year and you might just get lucky. You can catch some rays on the beach before walking onto the promenade and exploring the variety of affordable restaurants and shops. The Internal Blue Flag award is an impressive accolade to have and Tramore bay received it in 2018. The blue flag represents a beach that is safe, eco-friendly and overall an amazing place to visit.
The town itself is actually built on the steep hills behind the stunning beach. The waters are calm but the waves attract swimmers and surfers to the town on a regular basis especially during the summer. There are even surf classes for people to perfect their skills on the water. Many people also take sailing and kayaking lessons, which are available in Tramore. No matter what time of year you are in Tramore, you can enjoy the beach and the surrounding area to some degree.
If angling is something that interests you, catch a fish at the back strand which has gained itself a number of flounders and bass over the years, in addition to a variety of other fish. The cliffs around the resort are a wonderful place to relax and do some reef fishing. Now that you know a little more about the blue flag beach, sort out your accommodation for Tramore and plan your trip so that you can have a thoroughly amazing holiday from start to finish. You won’t regret it!
