Fintra Beach

Reviewed By emilyo60 - Mullingar, Ireland

I looked up the top ten beaches in Donegal so that we could visit as many as we could in our two weeks stint here and this beach was named. I can see why. However I've realised it is debatable list as there are so many beaches in Donegal. Google maps brought us to a parking lot very near holiday homes, we passed the closed Clock Tower into this estate. Others were parked here but we realised this wasn't the official car park when we got on the beach. It was free. Between the official and non-official carparks there is loads of parking here. It is a blue flag with lifeguards present. However after a full week in Donegal, I've realised that Donegal people are really spoilt for choice when it comes to beaches in their county. Some listed on TripAdvisor. Others not. Some advertised & signposted, most not. Some easy to find, most not. We have been finding that if you follow a tiny narrow windy road anywhere along the Donegal coast you will no doubt find a fabulous and highly likely unspoilt beach (Trá). Follow your nose and enjoy. To be honest, I preferred: the unsignposted Maghera strand, the unlisted Dooey, the iconic Carrickfinn & the unmarked Tramore near Rossbeg. Here's to another week of exploring this fabulous coast????& county.
