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

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.
