Beautiful coastal trail starting at the old Cross Abbey ruins, along the beach front. The Iniskea islands are visible from the shore line and the beach extends for approximately 2.5km. This walk is best done at low tide so as to make use of the extensive strand. A black post marked with the trail arrows on your left points you through through a marked pathway along the sand dunes and linking to a Cross lake. This lake is known for its swans and variety of wildlife. The lake shore road continues and veers left and links back up to the Cross Abbey starting point. A wonderfully refreshing walk for any time of year! Directions from Belmullet town- drive across the bridge and follow the signs for ‘An Fód Dubh’ (Blacksod), drive approximately 5km and turn right at the Church in Binghamstown (An Géata Mór). You will pass Belderragh beach on your right and continue on this road until you see the sign post directing you to the starting point for Cross loop walk. There is plenty of parking here at the starting point of the walk. Enjoy!
