Kitesurf on Rossbeigh Beach

Rossbeigh, with its gentle gradient, means that all water sports can be attempted without having to deal with deep waters. With the frequent SW prevailing wind, fresh off the Atlantic, it’s a popular spot for kitesurfing.

Rossbeigh is a 4.5km long Blue Flag beach with golden sand. With great parking along the first 800m of public road, access in summer to quieter launching spots is easy. The spit juts out on a north south axis so winds from SW to NW work well.

It’s a long flat beach, which on low tide can be up to 100m wide, so there’s plenty of room for everyone.

The best swells for Rossbeigh are SW, the same for Inch. With the right conditions and skillset, it’s possible to kitesurf between the two beaches, a distance of 6-8km. On flat days get your Kite Buggy out, as both Rossbeigh & Inch have long stretches of hard flat sand.

These two beaches are vast, and can often be deserted on the days when the wind & swell are full on. Barring a couple of hardy dog walkers on the beach, you’ll have the wind and surf to yourself.

The nearby village of Glenbeigh has plenty of great food and drink available to round off a day of high airs on Rossbeigh’s wild Atlantic.
