THERE are LOTS of steps to get to the beach, but is worth it. The beach gives a different perspective to the many cliffs on the Donegal shoreline. It is very much out of the way - we added this to our itinerary after the...More

The "Silver Strand" is well worth the effort of the numerous steps down (and back up again!). A beautiful, clean beach with amazing views and an added bonus of an awesome sunset.

At the end of the road in Malin Beg this beach is gorgeous and not to be missed. There is a car park and a set of stairs (over 140) to the beach so this is not for the frail or faint of heart. The...More
