Trawbreaga Bay, Malin Head, Inishowen, County Donegal, Ireland
The view from ‘Knockmany Bends’ overlooking ‘Five Fingers Strand’ & the sand dunes of Lagg. This 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.
Each year many folk travel abroad to highly congested tourist traps in search of tropical waters & 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 when they easily visit areas like here for free & also have the entire beach to themselves.
Ok I admit we don’t exactly have the foreign heat & most times we get 4 seasons in one day! 😂 but it’s our variable weather which carves & shapes our stunning landscape & shorelines. Shorts or raincoats we must still be thankful for what we have around us 🙏
