Stroove Beach (Dunagree Point)

Stroove is quite a small beach, only about 100 meters long, facing north-east overlooked by a lighthouse built in 1837. The beach lies at the end of a horseshoe-shaped bay along the hilly Inishowen Peninsula.

Stroove beach, which is sheltered from the prevailing Atlantic winds, is a popular spot for swimming, and is lifeguard protected every day from 22nd June until 30th August (between 12:00 and 18:00). Walking is a popular pastime in the area and there are a number of paths around the beach with the North Inishowen Natural Heritage Area nearby. Occasionally it might be possible to spot seals or even dolphins in the surf.

Behind the beach is a car park which gives access to the beach down a short path. Toilets can also be found here. There are a few cafes, pubs, and places to stay within walking distance of the beach, but the nearest town is Greencastle, a little over a mile to the south along the coastal road.
