Streedagh beach is a 3 km long sandy beach which has a decent surf. Streedagh can be windy as it is fairly open, but there are plenty of dunes to give you shelter. It is a beach which slopes gently into the water and is a perfect location for an open water swim, snorkeling , sea kayaking,....
Off Streedagh beach are the wrecks of three Spanish Armada ships, the Juliana, the La Lavia and the Santa Maria de la Vision. At really low tide, the ribs of a boat are visible above the sand. It is locally known as "the butter boat".
