This, the longest walk of the Dingle Way, is somewhat of a reward after a strenuous previous section. Enjoy walking along Ireland's longest beach for a large part of your journey into Castlegregory.

Impressive glacial valley views stretch ahead as you stride out of Cloghane. Although the longest stage, you can look forward to extended flat beach walking along the shores of Brandon and Tralee Bays, an absolute joy! The Dingle Way spans the length of Ireland’s longest beach, Fermoyle Strand, a seemingly endless string of thundering waves crashing onto a fantastic 11km of golden sand and dunes.

Reaching the head of the strand, the trail curves around Scraggane Bay to the north before returning down the eastern side of the loop and along the road to Castlegregory.
