The view from ‘Knockmany Bends’ overlooking ‘Five Fingers Strand’ & the sand dunes of Lagg. This strand takes it’s unusual name from the five long black sea-stacks that can be seen here on the centre part of this sandy beach. The surrounding sand dunes are officially the highest in all of Europe! These dunes were formed around 5000 years ago and now have their own protected & unique ecosystem.
Each summer many folk travel abroad to highly congested tourist traps in search of pacific coloured waters & white sandy beaches. If they only realised what is already here in Ireland along our Wild Atlantic Way, then they may think twice before spending thousands of pounds when they could visit areas such as here for free & have the entire beach to themselves. Now i’m no rocket scientist ?? but I know when something makes perfect sense ?
