This section takes you inland along an undulating ridge that is covered in a blanket of heather and peat. Explore remote and rugged Irish landscape at its best, with first-class walks. You’ll ascend the highest point of the Way’s coastal route, Knockavahaun, at 371m. A patchwork of forest and fields stretches out to Lough Currane. Ballinskelligs Bay and Waterville.

Charlie Chaplin and his family used to spend long holiday periods here and a bronze statue stands on the promenade at Waterville.
