A little slice of heaven. But people, please take your rubbish home! There's no facilities to dispose of rubbish on the beach, as it is just a quiet bay.

This is a really lovely wee beach but you have to walk quite a bit from the road. On a busy day there could be a problem parking.

We found this beach by chance when visiting Dunree Fort. Beautiful sandy beach clean and quiet well worth a visit

A lovely beach, and just up the hill is Dunree fort, there is plenty to see without even entering the fort itself, there is old second world war pill boxes all over the place, sit on the beach then go up the hill

Great spot to visit, amazing views and good places to walk with some shelter also if needed and parking facilities. No where nicer when the sun is shining. Would be great to see events here for families.

We could see it and badly wanted to go for a walk along the beach but no matter what we tried we could not find a natural way down to the bay. As was raining climbing through long grass was not an option.

This is well worth a visit if you are in Buncrana at any time. Lovely little place right on the edge of the sea, with excellent parking and sure to be of interest even for children

It is a hidden gem; small , clear-blue-green waters (if you are lucky enough to visit it in a sunny day - I was )
