Anchor Caravan Park is surrounded by some of the most beautiful beaches in Ireland, and arguably the world. Most importantly, we have direct access onto the stunning Aughacasla Beach and you will discover below all the other beaches that can be found in the local area.
All of these beaches are essentially connected to one another. As a result, there is quite literally miles and miles of golden sandy beaches that are waiting to be discovered. Each beach has its own unique characteristics, no one the same as the other.
Often referred to as 'Anchor Beach' by our regulars, Aughacasla Beach is a soft golden sandy beach. The beach overlooks Tralee Bay, which is sheltered from the elements of the open Atlantic. The waters are calm making it safe for all to enjoy. We are blessed with direct access onto this beach and therefore it can be reached in minutes.
Castlegregory Beach is a 5km stretch of beach that connects to Aughacasla Beach. You can walk to Castlegregory via the beach from Anchor Caravan Park, with only one stream to cross so again be prepared to get those feet wet.
You can continue walking down to the Maharees, where you will find the local watersport clubs. The beach has received the Green Coast Beach Award most recently in 2019. It is a short walk of 10 minutes from the village centre making it ideal to pop up for any necessities.
Cappagh Beach is a seldom-visited beach, near Cloghane and Castlegregory, and it is set amid a fairytale landscape of beaches and mountains.
It is not far from the spectacular Mount Brandon making it the perfect spot to begin a walking trail into the Brandon Range of mountains, or simply to explore the many nearby beaches dotted close by.

FERMOYLE to FAHAMORE BEACHES
The stretch of beach from Fermoyle to Fahamore spans 12 km from end to end making this one of the longest uninterrupted beaches in Ireland.
When we say uninterrupted, we truly mean it and as a result you can easily walk, run or even cycle the entire stretch (and back if you're feeling spring). The beach looks out over Brandon Bay and the North Atlantic and it is backdropped by Mount Brandon and it's surrounding ridges making for the most spectacular views. The beach is renowned for its rolling swells and excellent surf that have given it a reputation of one of the best surf and windsurfing locations in Ireland.
