Malainn Bhig also known as Malinbeg is a secluded bay visible from the Silver Strand beach Discovery Point and dramatised by the surrounding high, horseshoeshaped cliffs. The Bay is accessed by a steeply sloping series of steps. The headland on the Western side of the Bay presents the remains of fortifications beyond which Rathlinn O’Birne Island is just visible. The headland to the south east rises, parallel with the coastline to the top of Sliabh Liag Mountain (6km) creating exceptional views from the Discovery Point.
