Fenit beach and harbour has always been a very popular swimming spot. It has a marked swim course and is also home to the Tralee Bay Sailing Club, Open Water Swimming Club and annual Triathlons.

Fenit has lifeguards on duty during the summer season and is probably one of the most wheelchair accessible holiday destinations in Kerry.

June – August
