 Gweedores coastline along the Wild Atlantic Way stretches for approximately 25km from from Meenaclady in the north to Crolly in the south and can easily be described simply as one enormous Caribbean type sandy beach and as such is an outstanding place to visit in the summer months. Within in the parish of Gweedore there a large amount of bouldering and highball rock dotted all over the region, it is simply a case of stopping the car whenever you see rock from the road and going for a look.
