Well this is a beautiful beach! The weather wasn't great but the dramatic sky's over this beach took my breath away! I can only guess that on a nice sunny day it would be truly spectacular

The beach is nice, but the walk out to Fr. Hegarty's rock is well worth the taking. It's a nice gentle walk along the coastline of the Swilly.

The roughly three mile return walk through all the beaches is full of beautiful views across the water. The path is well maintained with benches placed regularly if you want to stop to rest and enjoy the scenery. We found it easy to find somewhere...More

This is a beautiful safe beach with a wonderful walk that overlooks the beautiful Lough Swilly. There is a children's play area and an outdoor gym if the walk isn't enough exercise for you.
