Malahide Beach

When you come out of Biscayne House, walk down to the seafront and there lies Malahide Beach. Across the water on the other side of the entrance to the estuary is the peninsula which is home to the Island Golf Club, founded in 1887. Prior to a new road being built in 1973, the only way to get to the Course was by ferry from the village. The Malahide Marina can also be seen from this part of the beach.

 

To the right are two well known areas for swimming called High Rock and Low Rock. During the summer months you’ll find many people swimming and fishing in both of these spots. While there are a handful of more hardy individuals who manage to find the courage to go in for a dip everyday of the year regardless of the weather.

The Velvet Strand

When you come out of Biscayne House, walk down to the sea front, turn right and this will take you on a beautiful scenic walk towards Portmarnock.

 

After approximately 1.5 KMS, emerging from the sand dunes, the broad expanse of Portmarnock Beach comes into view. It is the only beach in Europe with a perfectly flat 5- kilometre long stretch of hard-packed fine sand. The name, The a Velvet Strand, originates from the fineness and smoothness of the sand to be found there. The sand dunes are an important natural feature and habitat.
