Given that Google Earth doesn’t cover Tramore Bay in higher resolution, here are some pics from the OSI.
First is the whole bay, some of the currents can be seen. Next is the stretch of coast on thw west side where I swim, from the Guillamenes in the centre down to the headland with the old Metalman navigation pillars, and inward toward the pier. That stretch of coast is facing South East.
Next is Clonea Beach and Ballinacourty Lighthouse, Clonea is also facing the same direction but not as protected as there are no cliffs above the water. You can see the small rock of Carricknamoan that I often swim out to when conditions are good and the tide is high.
