Absolutely stunning beach, but easier accessed from the other side of the bay, as at the Portsalon side there is a tidal rivulet which impedes you getting onto the beach for a long walk when the tide is in or coming in . The beach is spotless, the sand pristine, what a place to escape the hum drum of modern life.

We visited here from @fanad head light house
It is an amazing beach and you will not be disappointed. Space and light in abundance. There’s a little coffee shop if you need a refreshment. Beach is stunning. Just go - you’ll love it.

Been going to portsalon since I was a kid when we use to have a caravan there, portsalon, I would say it's my happy place beach is stunning, the beach ate the pier is great especially if u want to keep an eye on the family, and you get a great pint of stout at the bar, we did stay in one of the houses just 50 yards from the pier 3 bedrooms very clean great place to stay overall portsalon hadn't changed that much there no gambling machines one arm bandits or arcade which is great only adds to its charm unlike other places who add all that jazz in just for money hands down portsalon great for all the family

Our first stop of the day from Letterkenny.

This huge beach was marvellous with the ice cold refreshing waters from the Atlantic to wake you up!

We found ourselves a nice little corner and had a picnic for lunch as well. There's nothing near or around so make sure to bring your own food and clean up before leaving!

Huge space, great for kites, and kids to run about and of course if you love the cold waters, a dip in the sea.
