Barna Strand

Barna Strand
Lat: 53.25052 - Lon: -9.14567
Take the Galway-Spiddal road (R336).
Barna is approximately 6km from Galway city.
The naturist area at Barna is about half way between Silver Strand (which is a popular textile beach) and the Pier at Barna village along the shoreline and can be reached from two directions.
The first way is to park at Silver Strand, and walk to the right over the stones along the shore towards Barna Pier.
Alternatively, drive towards Barna village.
Pass the road for Silver Strand, pass the church (Barna parish church) and take the next turn to the left.
At the end of this short road park your car and walk towards the sea.
There, walk to the left where you will see a rocky point in the distance.
That is the naturist area.
Hopefully, in the not too distant future the area may be signed ‘clothing optional’ and this will make the area easier to locate.
The area is a rocky outcrop but for swimming the sandy area immediately beside the rocks on the Barna side can be used.
When the tide is in, there is a nice swimming area off the rocks.
