Check out this beautiful beach in Donegal...

Down a steep hill you will find this magnificent sandy beach with clear water.  If you come during swimming season there is a lifeguard.  We were there in early March during a light rain and there were just a few other people walking along the beach like us.  The bright color of the sand against the massive rocks make for an incredible foreground for Donegal Bay.  


If you are in the area for a short time, do this on your way to/from Slieve League which is three times as tall as Cliffs of Moher. 

Fintra Beach: 23 Fintra Bay, Glenlee, Co. Donegal, Ireland
