The public is asked to enjoy our beautiful Inishowen beaches in a safe and sustainable manner. It is important to be mindful of the ongoing need to respect social distancing, hand hygiene and respiratory etiquette in relation to Covid-19. Beach users are also reminded to take care in or on the water and take note of water safety precautions. The public are also asked to leave no trace on our beaches, other than footsteps.
