Rossnowlagh is renowned for its wonderful beach. Situated on the Atlantic coast of south-west Donegal, the resort is treasured for its dramatic views over Donegal Bay and the towering cliffs of Slieve League. Rossnowlagh Beach, with its wide, golden, four-kilometer crescent, is popular with families for its lovely sands, scenic strolls and safe swimming, with regular lifeguard patrols during the summer. But it's more famous still for its excellent surfing. With huge waves rolling in at up to twenty feet high, Rossnowlagh has long hosted a variety of surfing championships. Other sports enjoyed at the beach include jet and water skiing, kitesurfing, windsurfing, beach casting and sea fishing. Walking and cycling are favourite activities, with Rossnowlagh linking through country lanes to such nearby towns as Ballyshannon to the south, via the Kingfisher Trail coastal loop. Another route leads to Murvagh, where there is another long beach with great dunes, and the fine 18-hole Donegal Golf Club links course, set on a peninsula. Drivers may like to explore lively Donegal town, about 16 kilometers north of Rossnowlagh. Closer to home, the Donegal Historical Society Museum, contained in a 1950s- built Franciscan Friary, is well worth visiting. And spectators flock to the World Rally Championships when they are hosted by Rossnowlagh.
