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.

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.

We were lucky to spend time on this beach on a sunny day in March. It is a gorgeous setting with water, mountains, a golf course and some beautiful scenery to admire. Worth a trip!

As this beach is located away from the main road, cars can't access it like some in the locality, thus making it a very safe beach for children to play on. The rocks on the beach make for great seats and ideal if your children...More
