County Donegal Things to Do: 48 reviews and 95 photos


There is only one word for this bay - stunning.

Ample walking and photography opportunities with the shipwreck in the centre of the sands forming a useful centerpiece. At Low tide you can easily walk out to the fishing boat wreck, which still has a rusty collection of winding gear and the like left on board. 'On board' is probably a little strong, as over the last 20 years or so, it has been gently rotting on the sands.

My two year old adequately described the scene as "Boat....Broke...No fish".

Other diversions include boat trips, digging for razor fish (see other tip) and in the winter at least pretending that you are Jeremy Clarkson and performing handbrake turns on the sands in your hire-car.
