This is one of my favourite shots on the site, for lots of reasons. It's of a beach which is in my opinion the best surf when it's on around the north coast, though I'm sure others would differ! It's shot from a hill with one of the best views across to Donegal and over to Scotland. The surf is empty - everyone else is round in East strand or Whiterocks. But a warning if you're thinking of driving / flying over to it: it only works like this very rarely - maybe twice in the last 12 months.

never really go that far down the beach, downhill is just too handy and there's a shower there too which is a big bonus

you ever surf the Benone end of it? The one time I went down there last year it was actually too rough and on shore to get out. Normally I would just go in by Downhill. But sheer laziness prevents me from driving round there. In recent swell it is amazing how empty the Port has been during week days. Weekends different of course.
