This area is along the waters' edge of the village of Waterville in County Kerry, Ireland on the Iveragh Peninsula. It's a cute little village, and known for being a favorite vacation spot for the silent film actor Charlie Chaplin. There's even a statue of him right off the beach a few yards from this spot. As you can see in this image, the algae is a prominent feature on the rocky shoreline. It was a nice break from driving along the Ring of Kerry to stop here and enjoy a peaceful walk along the beach.
