What more could one say about Silver Strand Beach, other than it’s simply one of the most stunning beaches you could ever lay your eyes on! A horse-shoe beach/cove with the most amazing scenery all round it for miles as far as the eye can see. Ideally placed on the very western point of Donegal, far away from the everyday bustling of congested towns & the “rat race” etc. Silverstrand Beach is pretty much a little bit of heaven tucked away safe & sound here on Donegal’s Wild Atlantic Way
Looking out onto the vast Atlantic Ocean from here & thinking that the next stop is Canada! is a very surreal feeling. It brought thoughts to my mind on how it was for those during the Irish emigration of the great famine of 1847, when ships set sail from this very cove on a 6-week sail bound for the new worlds of America & Canada. It must have been very difficult to say goodbye to this scenery forever.
