Malin Mor Left in Donegal is an exposed beach break that has very reliable surf and works all around the year. Works best in offshore winds from the east and there is no shelter here from cross shore breezes. Easily blown out by onshore winds Most of the surf here comes from groundswells and the optimum swell angle is from the west northwest. There is no beach break and there is left hand reef break too. Best around low tide. Even when the surf is up, crowds are unknown. Take care to avoid the rocks.

FEATURE UPDATE: we now show red swell icons for 'open sea' swells that are travelling in an unfavourable direction for the surf break.

They are also significant for windsurfers and other water users that tend to venture further off-shore.
