Bundoran Main Beach

The main beach is situated in front of Bundoran’s main promenade. It is the beach where all of Bundoran’s grommet surfers learn to surf. The Main Beach is a small stretch of beach but at high tide on a 2-3 foot swell it can produce some great rippable left and right-handers. A local gem of a wave on its day, but it has a very fickle sand build up and can peal one day and close out the next. It is unique in that it breaks better on an onshore wind than an offshore one.

Things to watch out for

  • On a medium to large swell (especially on an outgoing tide), the rip can be very strong from left to right and along the Rougey rocks.
  • The main Beach is life guarded in summer months and can get very busy with swimmers on hot sunny days.
