Marblehill, Dunfanaghy

August 2013

Marblehill is an attractive curved beach, nicely sheltered by the small peninsulas at either end. It is one of a number of quality Blue Flag swimming locations Donegal is lucky to have.

The water here is lovely and clear with soft sand underfoot. When we visited there was a bit of a breeze and some waves which the many surfers and canoeists surely enjoyed. There was a gradual wade in where we swam and the many young people in the water suggests this is a good place for families to visit.

There are steps down to the beach and there is access for wheelchairs/buggies near the shop.Lifeguards are on duty during the summer and there are toilets about 500 metres before the beach. Just at the beach there is also a shop and surf school .

All in all this is a lovely place for families to splash, swim and surf.
