Coastal Segment along Tranrossan Bay, Donegal, Ireland.

Coastal Segment along Tranrossan Bay, Donegal, Ireland.

Tranrossan Bay is located in Donegal on Ireland's exposed northwest coast. The bay faces west into the prevailing swell, which together with a 3.5 m spring tide range maintains a wide tide-modified beach with low tide rips. This view shows the beach at high tide with waves breaking across the 150 m wide low gradient surf zone. While the main beach and surf zone are sandy, the small beaches in the foreground are composed of cobbles with a sand surf zone. One hundred and fifty meter high Gortnalughoge mountains, composed of metamorphic rocks, dominate the left horizon, with a township of the same name located in its lee.
