White Park Bay Beach

White Park Bay Beach

The spectacular 3 mile long 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.
