Five Fingers Strand

Five Fingers Strand

Continuing with my theme of following the Inishowen Peninsula beaches this is the five fingers strand or trawbega beach. The irish translation of tra is beach and breaga is false. The literal translation is false beach, this is very true as the shifting sands create deep holes that can catch out the unwary. It is definitely not a good place to swim given the strong tides that exist.

It is however an excellent surf beach.
