The village has a beautiful setting overlooking Lough Foyle towards the dramatic Benevenagh Mountain. It originally developed as fishing port but it recent times has become a popular family tourist destination. This is due to a number of factors including its central location on the Inishowen Peninsula, its easy access to the dramatic northern coastlines of Derry and Antrim and its proximity to the historic walled City of Derry.
