Clean Coast Big Beach Clean

The Big Beach Clean is a Clean Coasts initiative that usually takes place in September, with the end of the bathing season. During the Big Beach Clean, Clean Coasts volunteers are also asked to carry out marine litter surveys to quantify the amount and types of litter on Irish beaches. These surveys are aimed at heightening awareness about the issue of marine litter and serve as an indicator of the magnitude of the problem.

Take a Dip

September is said to be one the best times to swim in the sea and Tramore historically has been the place to go at this time of year. The sea is still quite warm at approx. 15°C and the framenting seaweed releases iodine into the sea which is reputed to have therapeutic properties. Swim safe - always swim in a safe area. See Irish Water Safety for information.
