fintra beach

Fintra beach is a beautiful sandy beach just a couple of kilometers outside of Killybegs.  We haven't walked there yet but will do it as soon as the weather allows.  We usually catch a ride with one of our neighbors and it is a great place to hang out for an afternoon, take a walk or just sit and stare at the scenery.


Fintra beach, along with 12 other Donegal beaches, has been awarded a Blue Flag. ("Beaches are awarded the Blue Flag based on compliance with 32 criteria covering the following:
1) Environmental Education and Information 2) Water Quality 3) Environmental Management 4)
Safety and Services All Blue Flags are awarded for one season at a time. If the criteria are not fulfilled during the season or the conditions change, the Blue Flag may be withdrawn."
