Beautiful beach and promenade on the North coat of Northern Ireland. Joins onto Portrush harbour with many bars and restaurants around the harbour . Surfing school and boat trips from Portrush harbour. A must visit . Lovely walk by the Atlantic Ocean.

Enjoyed a lovely short walk would have loved to have stayed longer but still had more sightseeing to do. Great views all around.

No matter what time of day, the West Strand is a joy. Great waves roll in but at sunset the colours are a joy to behold, especially if you are strolling barefoot through the shallow water. A quiet, reflective time to enjoy.

If you visit the north of Ireland you must do the walk along the Strand toward White rock. Just heavenly.

No dog walking is only aloud off peak September to May i think. However you can walk your dog freely on the beach near the lifeboat.
