A remote oasis of golden sand arcs around jade clear water to form Glassillaun Beach. The skyline to the North East is dominated by majestic Mweelrea Mountain, the highest peak in Connaught… taunting us to climb it! The views to the North, West and South West are washed by the Wild Atlantic Ocean and dotted with a myriad of islands steeped in ancient legend and folklore. They call out to be discovered on foot, or circumnavigated by kayak. The adventurous traveller will discover why this region has the best SCUBA Diving in Europe. The water temperature on the West coast is moderated by the warming Gulf Stream, causing this nutrient rich water to support a profusion of marine life. Glasssillaun Beach is a ‘Blueway’ with Scubadive West on its doorstep, offering Scubadiving and Snorkelling programs to suit all abilities. Glassillaun Beach is an essential stopping off point on the Wild Atlantic Way! Whether you are new to diving and would like to try-a-dive on our half-day introductory programme or you would like to learn to dive on our PADI Open Water Diver Course, Scubadive West is the ideal location. If you are a qualified diver you can join us on our exciting boat diving adventures!
