Portnagh Rock is the most popular shore dive in the area. It is extremely accessible with a set of steps leading down into the water. Again it is well sheltered from the prevailing winds and diving is possible all the year round. This dive site is at the very end of the road beside the lighthouse. The rock is nearly always visible and the snorkel out to it only takes a few minutes.
Again, diving here offers a sheer face down to 30m with plenty of fish life and crevices. At the bottom of the face is a very interesting area of large rocks and boulders offering plenty of holes, gullies and small ledges. The rocks extend down to 25m. On a full tide it is relatively easy to acquire a 30m dive. Just continue out from the rocks onto sand, where a small ledge is reached and the required depth. As you move out from the point there is a current on the flood tide. Overall the general area of this rock offers a range of depths and underwater terrain to suit the needs of most divers. It is very suitable for small groups of divers without boat facilities.
