Trawbreaga Bay, Malin Head, Inishowen, County Donegal, Ireland

Five Fingers Strand takes its unusual name from the five long black sea-stacks that can be seen on the north end of this rocky shore. The surrounding sand dunes are some of the highest in all of Europe. These dunes were formed around 5000 years ago and now have their own protected unique ecosystem. They are nowadays threatened by rising sea levels and are eroding away very fast back into the sea…

This view from Knockmany Bends overlooks Five Fingers Strand and the Dunes of Lagg to the left, the Isle of Doagh in the background and if you look further into this scene, you can see Mamore & Urris. To the right can be seen Glashedy Island floating lonesome with its tiny desert island beach ????

Each year many Irish folk travel abroad to highly congested tourist traps in search of tropical waters and white sandy beaches. If they only realised what is already here in Ireland along our shores, then they may think twice before spending a small fortune to hop onto a crowded plane. Here we can easily visit areas like this for free, whilst having the entire beach to ourselves.

Ok I admit we don’t exactly have tropical heat, and most of the time we get 4 seasons in one day! ???? but it’s our variable weather which carves and shapes our stunning landscape and shorelines. Whilst wearing our shorts or raincoats we must still be thankful for what we already have around us ????
