Rossnowlagh Beach is one of Ireland’s and Europe’s best Blue Flag surfing beaches. As the slowly rising beach faces westward into the Atlantic Ocean, and the fact that Donegal Bay has a funnel-like shape, it can increase the size of the waves, especially in winter when some huge rollers are generated and it has been known to have waves up to 7 metres (20 ft) high.
Regarded by many as one of the most scenic and dramatic beaches in the whole of the Northwest, Rossnowlagh has good safe facilities and excellent water quality. Set in a 4km crescent of golden sand it is popular for all kinds of watersports. Beware: cars on the beach and therefore not safe for small children.
Murvagh Beach is a long sandy beach that stretches about 2kms along the bay. An extensive sandy beach, it is calm and sheltered. The extensive dune system in this area is a designated Special Area of Conservation. Parking facilities are excellent with one very large car park and many smaller areas along the beach front.
