Beautiful beach on the main road between Derry & Buncrana. It has a blue flag and is quite safe to swim. Usually not too busy and car parking beside it.

The Lisfannon Strand is one of Inishowen's beautiful beaches, which attracts tourist and locals all year round. The beach walk from Buncrana Golf Club to the North West Golf Club has to be one of the best in Donegal.
