Seapoint beach opens to the north and consists mainly of large rocks and sand. It is located near Dun Laoghaire in County Dublin. The beach is flat and shallow and the area is suitable for swimming at high tide. Beside the beach is the Seapoint Martello Tower, this was part of a network of 28 sites that were built to defend Dublin from Napoleonic invasion in the early nineteenth century and is a protected structure.

To the south of the beach, the sea covers some of the rocks; you should take extra care swimming in these parts but the area is still shallow. During the summer months the north of the beach is well-liked by swimmers and to the south canoeing surfing and jet skiing are popular. The beach is life guarded throughout the bathing season. The beach is easily accessible for cars and by public transportation.

The area is an internationally important bird site and is designated a Special Protection Area (SPA). The bay is designated a Special Area of Conservation due to its extensive sand and mudflats.
