One of the Best - Anywhere!
Sep 2020
Portsalon Beach, also known as Ballymastoker Beach is an absolute wonder & probably one of the best beaches anywhere! The lovely golden sands are typical of the many stunning beaches that meet the Atlantic on the majestic coastline of Co. Donegal. It's pristinely clean, surrounded by unspoilt countryside & is located on the north eastern side of Fanad Peninsula. As you approach the beach from Rathmullan there are fabulous views overlooking the entire beach. These beaches are fantastic for walking but best when the tide is out as they treble their width. An absolute must see!

One of the best beaches in the world

The sheer space of Portsalon beach is fantastic. There are public toilets at the top of the beach near to the Rathmullen end. There are always food and ice cream vans available in the Summer time.
At the village of Portsalon end there is a restuarant and bar plus the Golf Club also does food.
Car parking may be a problem on hot days so come early. There is a brand new car park and recycle facility near the golf club. The length of the beach ensures that there is never any worry about social distancing.
The water is crystal clear and lifeguards are on duty during the summer season. Enjoy as it is also free to enter.

Beautiful beach with flat golden sand for miles. Also worth driving up to the Ballymastocker Bay viewing point to see the beaches from above. There is a toilet block in the beach carpark with wheelchair access.

Can't wait to go back

Amazing beach 4 days in a row! The kids loved it, building sandcastles with moates, collecting hermit crabs of all sizes and releasing them back into the wild, sea swimming and body boarding and the adults loved it for a bit of sea swimming and a bit of snorkeling!

Stunning Beach
Jul 2020 • Family
This was my third visit to this beach and it never fails to take my breath away. Absolutely stunning at full tide and low tide. Safe for the family to play with lifeguards at the far end of Ballymastocker Bay. Evening walks as the sun set are unbelievable as are early morning walks. The beach is practically empty a lot of the time and is a true gem in Donegal.

Yet another beautiful beach in County Donegal . Even on a freezing cold Winter's day it was lovely to walk and take in some good fresh sea air 😁
It was practically empty while we were there apart from a few people walking their dogs .
Great views , a very relaxing place .

One of Donegal's best Blue Flag Beaches. The views of the beach from The Knonkalla Coastal Road is breathing. Miles & miles of sand. Scenery is glorious. It is one of Donegal's most photographed beaches. Nearby you will also find Portsalon Golf Links.

In the summer months, it's a kids haven for canooing & paddle boarding. Lessons also available.

A must visit.
