Stroove is another of Donegal’s many fine beaches. This is of the smaller variety and all the better if you like your swimming compact and sheltered. Rocks at either end add to the shelter that is available.
Cliffs at either end also give protection and when we were there the crystal clear water was fresh and calm for swimming . While the wade in was quite gradual, you are out of your depth fairly quickly so be careful.
Stroove has a fairly good sized car park along with a couple of picnic tables and portaloos.
Blue Flag beach . Lifeguards are on duty during the summer months.
Access to the beach is down a couple of sandy but rough paths, which are buggy but not wheelchair accessible.
From Derry you take the A2 to Muff and then pick up the R238 which runs alongside Lough Foyle. As you pass through Greencastle watch out for a right turn onto the R241 which will bring you to Dunagree Head and the beach.
