Beautiful stretch of golden sand on the North Antrim coast
The spectacular sandy beach forms a white arc between two headlands on the North Antrim Coast. Its secluded location means that even on a busy day there is plenty of room for quiet relaxation.
The beach is also backed by ancient sand dunes that provide a range of rich habitats for bird and animal life.
Enjoy lazy summer days, picnics, making sandcastles and long walks. You'll find that even on a busy day, this is a secluded and relaxing place to be.
The Friends of White Park Bay, a local conservation group from the north coast of Antrim, attended a butterfly identification day hosted by the National Trust and led by butterfly expert Catherine Bertrand from Butterfly Conservation NI, earlier in the year. Now a number of members of the group have become skilled and enthusiastic butterfly recorders, and have made a major contribution to butterfly recording at the bay over the past recording season.
Always check the tide before you plan a walk from White Park Bay to Portbraddan or Ballintoy Harbour.
