Silver Strand (Trabane) Beach, Malin Beg, Co Donegal
Trabane Strand is a spectacular hidden jem of a beach at Malin Beg and 7km south of Glencolumbkille. The beach is accessible only from the sea or on foot via a series of steps, your challenge here is to count the steps down to the beach.
The bay is called "The Doon" and both the bay and beach are surrounded by high cliffs which act as gaint wind breakers making the beach a natural sun trap.
Trabane strand is popular with hikers as a starting / finishing point for a walk that crosses the notorious "One Man's Pass," a narrow ridge with steep drops on both sides, people who suffer vertio beware.
