From Malin Head, which is the most northerly point in Donegal, down to the seaside town of Bundoran, the coastal route is a haven of picturesque towns and villages, scenic harbours and long sandy beaches. Adventure seekers will love Donegal, as the coastal waters are perfect for any water-sport activity and the landscape lends itself beautifully to great walking, cycling and horse-riding trails.
