- At Spanish Point, 2 miles (3 km) west of Milltown Malbay, is a small resort with golf (9) and a good sandy beach.
- Spanish Point is so called because of the Spaniards who were buried here after the wreck of their Armada ships along this coast.
- One of the ships was wrecked on the reefs to landward of Mutton Island (2 miles/3 km) off shore, can be visited by currach hired in the fishing village of Quilty. More than a thousand men were lost, and many of their bodies were carried by the tide to Spanish Point.
- Spanish Point is centrally located on Clare's west coast so it makes a perfect base for touring and visiting such attractions as the Burren, the Cliffs of Moher and the Aran Islands.
