Slow beach break unless a large clean swell is pushing in.  Throws some surprises particularly in the winter season.  Breaks in both directions, some secret spots nearby that work when its blown out.

What's it like!

The beach at Keel, Achill, contains dangerous rip tides from its centre to the eastern end (under the Minaun Cliffs). Surfing should only take place in the western half of the beach waters. A prominent notice on the beach informs all sea users of the boundary of the dangerous waters. There is an extensive parking area, accessed by road, adjacent to the beach
