Strand Road, Dublin 4
A lovely, long strech of sandy beach where the sea can be seen only at high tide. Its promenade is very popular by walkers, dog-walkers and joggers. Not long ago some cool outdoor fitness equipment has been installed at six locations along the seafront. At high tide it is a perfect spot for a paddle on sunny days, but when the sea is nowhere to be seen, it is still popular with families due to its silky sand.
