Activities at Portstewart Strand

The beauty of Portstewart Strand is that it can be enjoyed in all weathers. Pack a picnic and bring the car onto the sand and spend the day building sand castles, playing games or simply relaxing and enjoying the surroundings.

Summer fun

In peak season, wetsuits and body boards can be rented from local activity providers on site. Take a walk into the sand dunes and see the other side of this magnificent beach. Search for wild thyme and strawberries, look out for moths and butterflies and enjoy the quieter side of the strand.

Barmouth bird hide

The Barmouth is a nearby nature and wildlife reserve and a haven to migrant waterfowl, waders and nesting birds throughout the year. It offers an excellent opportunity to watch local wildlife. Depending on the time of year, you can expect to find curlew, redshank and mallards. Keys to the bird-hide are available from Hezlett House.
