ACHILL ISLAND

July 2019

In July 2019, Big 7, a travel media company, has named Keem Bay one of the best beaches in the world.

In a recent survey, Keem Bay is up toward the top getting the 11th place in their list of the 50 best beaches in the world. 

According to their guide

  • Keem Bay is a breathtaking rural and sheltered beach surrounded by cliffs on Ireland's largest island Achill Island;

  • its gleaming white sand rivals tropical islands and the water is superbly clear;

  • the sun might not always be shining, but when it does, it’s world-class and it’s beautiful even on a rainy day.

Also it is one of the Signature Points on the Mayo section of the Wild Atlantic Way. It is a magnificent rural and sheltered beach at the head of a valley between the cliffs of Benmore to the west and Croaghaun Mountain to the east.
