 Additional Information

Very good beginners spot. East Strand's beach is a lot larger than West Strand's, which can work in West's favour when the waves at East aren't so big.

Atmosphere

Just like Newquay, Cornwall, but in N Ireland. The town's equally as awesome, albeit colder, but the waves are less crowded. A real gem.
