Fingal Head is the next suburb south of Tweed Heads over the river on a natural peninsula separated by the river one side and ocean the other. Fingal Head has a primary school, a caravan park, a surf club and a corner shop/ bottleshop.
Fingal was named after the mythical Celtic Giant Fingal who supposedly built the famous Giant's Causeway in Ireland. The likeness here is that Fingal Head has its own Giants Causeway, caused from hot lava flows from Tweed's Volcano thousands of years ago was rapidly cooled when the lava flow hit the ocean. This unique rock formation is located just below the Fingal Head lighthouse, a nice walk from Lighthouse Parade.
