Banna Strand Surf Guide

Banna Strand in Kerry is an exposed sandbar break that has dependable surf and can work at any time of the year. Offshore winds blow from the east and there is no shelter here from cross shore breezes. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the best swell direction is from the west. The sandbar break provides left and right handers. Likely to be crowded if working. Beware of localism.
