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 to park at the start of the walk and we did not have any worries... 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.

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 are playing on the sand or ball games you can sit and near them.

The Shore Front Beach is a short walk but the views across at the Fanad penisula are worth it. It gets rocky at the end but if you climb them you can continue your walk out to Neds Point.
