You'll never have to fight for a wave on Inch

Surf on Inch Beach

Imagine you’re on a beach with a long stretch of golden sand, the surf’s up and your view of the Atlantic is framed by Ireland’s highest peak. As you take to the water, there’s no one around meaning you don’t have to fight to jump on a wave … that’s what you get when you come to surf Inch Beach.

Inch Beach is one of Reek’s District’s two Blue Flag beaches, a wide expanse that seems to stretch on, and with excellent surf conditions for most of the year. Autumn is when the surf really comes to life.

There are waves at Inch Beach that you can get minute-long rides on while being surrounded by a breathtaking landscape of vivid colours. It’s wild and rugged when the clouds come down, but crisp and perfect on the clear days. This massive Blue Flag beach has it all – including a hire shop and surf school, Kingdom Waves, that can get you kitted out and on the water in minutes.

Once out there, you get perfect conditions, more often than not with less than ten surfers in the line-up, not to mention that there’s rarely a bodyboarder in sight. Although even when they are around, they rip it up too.

If you’re wondering why it’s so quiet when it’s so amazing, well, we’re just as flummoxed. But we like it that way. So let’s keep it our little secret…
