Dooega beach is a sheltered shoreline located on a small coastal inlet. The northern part of the site consists of a low lying flat coastal grassland of machair which is backed by Keel. Machair are low, flat, windswept sand plains found on the western seaboard. It is one of the rarest wildlife habitats in Europe and in Ireland it is a priority Annex I habitat listed on the EU Habitats Directive, which means it is afforded special protection and conservation. Machair grassland forms part of a larger system that contains a mosaic of wet and dry grasslands, which make it a habitat rich in birds, plants and insects.

There is an access ramp for the disabled,however there are no disabled toilets. The beach is not lifeguarded although life saving equipment is available on the beach.
