RNLI Lifeguard with rescue board

Trevone Beach

Trevone is a sandy cove bordered by cliffs to the north and south. At low tide the beach opens out into a wide, rocky bay, while at high tide it is limited to a narrow cove. It receives some shelter from swell and wind, producing good surf when nearby beaches are closed. Access is good with a beach-level car park.

Beach information

Stay safe on the beach

  • Wherever possible, swim at a lifeguarded beach. Find your nearest RNLI lifeguarded beach, or the Irish Water Safety website.
  • When on a lifeguarded beach, find the red and yellow flags and always swim or bodyboard between them – this area is patrolled by lifeguards.
  • Never swim alone.
  • If you get into trouble, stick your hand in the air and shout for help.
  • If you see someone in difficulty, don't attempt a rescue. Tell a lifeguard, or, if you can't see a lifeguard, call 999 or 112 and ask for the coastguard.
  • For more advice about having fun and staying safe on the beach, see our beach safety advice.
