Nothing rejuvenates the mind and body like a stroll along a sandy beach with the roar of the Atlantic waves crashing on the shore. With so many beaches to choose from here itโ€™s no surprise that two of our beaches have been awarded the coveted Blue Flag meaning that they are clean, safe and ideal for swimming; Culdaff and Stroove. Culdaff Blue Flag Beach is a sandy beach with two rocky outcrops at the southeast side which are exposed at times during the day depending on the tidal phase. The beach is contained to the west by sand dunes and to the north-west by the Culdaff River. It is a popular beach for surfing with a number of surf schools. Stroove Blue Flag Beach is located close to the village of Greencastle on the eastern coast of the Inishowen peninsula near the mouth of Lough Foyle. Stroove Beach consists of a small sandy beach, close to the charming Stroove Lighthouse.

These beaches are also DISCOVERY POINTS on the Wild Atlantic Way which is testament to their beauty as hidden gems to discover. Inishowen has seven other DISCOVERY POINTS as follows: Inch Island, Lisfannon Beach, Dunree Head, Pollan Bay, Kinnagoe Bay, Magilligan Point View and Inishowen Head. The spectacular Malin Head is our SIGNATURE POINT on the WAW.
