Set on the Inishowen Peninsula this sheltered bay is easily recognised with its horseshoe-like shape and the towering 250 metre Binnion Hill overlooking the eastern end. The sand here is smooth and golden and when the tide is out there is plenty of beach.
You’ll quite often see people riding horses here and there’s an equestrian centre nearby if you fancy a try. The surf can get quite good here although it tends to be a little more sheltered than other spots - which can be a good thing.
To the rear of the beach are grassy dunes and a small caravan park. Beyond this the landscape soon starts to head upwards. In the hills not far from the beach is Glenevin waterfall which plummets over 12 metres down a narrow wooded valley.
