Located on the western shores of the deep inlet of Lough Swilly is the spectacular expanse of Ballymastocker Bay. As well as being a winner of the Blue Flag award Ballymastocker was also once voted "second most beautiful beach in the world" by the Observer Magazine.

On the right day it isn't difficult to see why this beach has gained such accolades. The perfect golden sand here stretches for over a mile towards the little harbour town of Portsalon.
