Wine strand is a lovely, small beach, sheltered within Smerwick harbour. The water here is crystal clear and cool. There is a gradual wade in and when we were there the water was perfectly calm. Apart from being a good place for a swim this seems like a good place for snorkelling.
The beach is small and has shelter from the rocks. It’s an ideal spot for families, but it must be busy when the weather is good.
Car parking is very limited along the road side. Access to the beach is down a short path which seems ok for buggies.
From Dingle take the R559 in the direction of Slea Head. After you pass through Ballyferriter watch out for a left turn signposted for the beach.
