Geocache Description:

While on holiday in Malin, Co Donegal we found many beautiful beaches and fantastic scenery.  This earthcache has been set at one of those beaches, it is a pebble beach not to far from Malin Head and on a beautiful day you can see both Malin Head and Inishtrahull Island.

At this pebble beach you will also find Rocky Outcrops and Sea Stacks

The rocky outcrops which are partly in the sea are areas that have been formed due to many years of erosion.
