Ballymastocker Bay, Fanad, County Donegal
Indeed some years ago writers of the Observer Magazine voted the fabulous beach on Ballymastocker Bay on the Fanad peninsula of County Donegal the second most beautiful beach in the world, (pipped at the post by a beach in the Seyshells).
Ballymastocker Bay, Fanad County Donegal
The beach is huge, stretching all the way from Portsalon to the steep Knockalla coast road. A drive, or a walk up the hairpin bends of the Knockalla coast road brings you to two viewing points from which to view this spectacular beach, the first half to two thirds of the way up and the second at the very top of the road. From the top the views are not only spectacular but also a bit dizzying for those who have a fear of heights.
