Magilligan Point Beach

Magilligan Point is the tip of one of the largest (7 miles) sand dune systems in the British Isles. The coastline constantly changes with winter storms and this is one of the main reasons the site has been declared a nature reserve.

Magilligan Point guards the mouth of Lough Foyle and is home to Lough Foyle Ferry and Martello Tower.
