Fintra beach is a beautiful sandy beach just a couple of kilometers outside the fishing port of Killybegs. It is approached by a steep road down to it which offers stunning views of both the beach and Donegal Bay as far as Benbulben mountain in County Sligo.
There is a car park beside the beach and a few stone steps leading down to the beach.
Fintra beach, along with 12 other Donegal beaches, has once again this year (2012) been awarded a Blue Flag. ("Beaches are awarded the Blue Flag based on compliance with 32 criteria covering the following: 1) Environmental Education and Information 2) Water Quality 3) Environmental Management 4) Safety and Services All Blue Flags are awarded for one season at a time. If the criteria are not fulfilled during the season or the conditions change, the Blue Flag may be withdrawn."
