Doonloughan. A very long period (17 secs) Hurricane swell of 1m and SE offshore winds. There are a series of 4 small beaches here and the eastmost one had the biggest waves - about shoulder high. A NW swell is a better direction. Distant offshore reefs looked fantastic.

ronan I've seen massive waves breaking on those offshore reefs. I wonder if anybody has/can ever surf them?? this beach looks like it could get quite heavy.
