Magherawarden beach in Portsalon is a beautiful beach, approximately a mile long. It has been awarded the prestigious Blue Flag award and due to its location, is sheltered from the worst of the Atlantic weather. This beach is an absolute gem, and even though it was voted as the second most beautiful beach in the world, it never gets overcrowded. This beach has received the International Blue Flag award for 2015. 


The Fanad Peninsula is located in north Donegal and contains some of the finest scenery in the northwest. The golf course at Portsalon is truly spectacular as is the road which skirts Knockalla mountain along the Wild Atlantic Way.

You will find that there is more to this spectacular and diverse peninsula than you might have thought. In addition to beautiful beaches and stunning scenery, you’ll find golf courses, rural villages and towns, historic buildings and ruins, extreme sports and the best in food and drink. With plenty of places to stay in Fanad, the most difficult decision you’ll have to make is where in this unique area of Donegal you want to visit first.
