DOG'S BAY BEACH

0
Rated 0 out of 5

Lying back to back, Dogs Bay and Gurteen Bay are two of the most beautiful beaches in County Galway. Dogs Bay and Gurteen Bay make up one of the finest stretches of coastline in Connemara, offering uncompromising views of Errisbeg and the surrounding countryside.

Dogs Bay is a spectacular horseshoe shaped bay with more than a mile long stretch of white sandy beach. Similar to Gurteen Bay, the sand is not comprised of traditional limestone but rather made entirely of fragments of seashells which give it a pure white colour.

The area is internationally important for its rare and interesting ecological, geological and archaeological features. Both beaches are well sheltered from currents and are considered safe for swimming and other watersports such as windsurfing and kitesurfing. The are also wonderful trails for walking.
