Strandhill is a popular beachbreak with a variety of peaks, north and south, that at times can get hollow. Take care when surfing at high tide, especially during spring tides, when entering or leaving the water is dangerous due to waves breaking on boulders. The beach has dangerous rip currents so ask a local about the conditions before you paddle out. Swimming at Strandhill Beach is prohibited as there are no lifeguards and surf schools are not allowed to rent surf equipment or wetsuits. There are four surf schools in the area to choose from for beginner and intermediate surfers.
