Magheroarty Beach

 Magheroarty Beach is just one of many fantastic beaches on the west coast. It is a big, horse-shoe shaped beach with Ireland’s biggest sand dune at the very end.  The main beach boasts a superb reef break at the top end of the beach, just upwind of the pier.  This reef is suitable for windsurfing or surfing, and in both cases you can launch right off the end of the pier!
