Maghera, Ardara, County Donegal, Ireland
Located on Donegal’s most remote peninsula, everything here & around for miles is pristine. Not a single piece of litter, no shops, no busy roads & strangely enough barely any people either. With its sandy shore & sand dunes stretching as far as the eye can see you can understand why some folk call it “The Desert Beach”. The perfect oasis to wander about & let your worried mind roam free for a while….
Maghera Strand is shielded from the elements by ‘Slievetooey Mountain’. Along the base of this mountain can be found over 10 sea caves. These caves travel deep within this mountain & can only be accessed during low tide. Unfortunately it was high tide so I couldn’t reach them on this visit, but will return to investigate them during low tide someday. There are ancient tales that one of these sea caves has a secret tunnel leading under this mountain ridge for many miles, all the way to the ‘Slieve League’ cliffs!
