Culdaff Beach, Culdaff, Co Donegal

Culdaff is a sandy beach on the Inishowen peninsula. The coastal habitats in this area are protected and designated a Special area for Conservation (SAC). The site is divided into distinct zones by the rocky headlands of Black Rock, Bucker’s Rock and Lady’s Rock. Beach use is concentrated on the eastern part of the main beach between Carratra and central access points and in the rock coves between Lady’s Port and Black Pool.

A clean, safe, Blue Flag beach, it’s ideal for swimming and sunbathing, with lifeguards on duty during the summer. Other activities on offer include wildlife watching and sea-angling, with a sea-angling festival taking place every July. Other nearby attractions include a remote but lively pub and boat trips.
