This must be a hidden gem in county Donegal as every time we go there are very few people there. This makes it a lovely quite and peaceful place for a walk along the strand. The sand dunes are massive and a sight to behold....More

It's a beautiful quiet beach for walking - but no swimming. The cliffs along the beach are a favourite nesting place for choughs.

Five Fingers Strand is absolutely beautiful, it really is. It is a short drive from Malin Head or Carndonagh and offers amazing views of cliffs, white sands, beautiful waters and islands. It is a great place for kids to play and the wind is magnificent...More

The five fingers strand (called Lagg beach locally). It's located on the road to Malin Head. There are 5 rock pinnacles which resembles 5 fingers jutting into the sea. Lovely for a walk, however, not safe for swimming!

Five Fingers Strand is one of many beautiful and peaceful spots on the Wild Atlantic Way in Donegal. It's got big sky, a long, clean sandy beach and rolling waves. Perfect!

This is one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen. The tide can be strong when it is coming in but it is a great walking beach.

This place has changed a lot in the past decade due to climate changes. The beach is getting less and less, but it's still one of the best places to visit. You can walk along the beach for quite a long time.

Visited this beach lots of times over the years when we're in Ireland, one of my favourite beaches (but not for swimming as there are dangerous tides). The scenery, sand dunes and wildlife are all amazing. Take a drive up Inishowen 100 to Knockamany Bends...More
