    Wonderful scenic view
    We did a full circle loop of the the island of Ireland. We were here on our 2nd day of driving from Dublin. The north coast of Northern Ireland is so scenic and beautiful. This stop is one of the best for sea views and beach.

    Beautiful beach
    Absolutely gorgeous beach! We loved walking along the whole bay and were able to get round to Ballintoy as the ride was out! I would be careful about doing that if the tide was coming in! Lots of wildlife e.g. shags, oyster catchers, eider ducks, etc. Very poor phone signal which was no problem to me, but worth being careful!

    Nice views and beach
    There's a viewpoint you see from your car if you don't want to make the long walk down to the beach. If you do, there's a small parking lot (with a food truck!) which was very busy when we went on a nice day, so there were only a couple spots available. The walk down to the beach is pretty long and downhill, meaning all uphill on the way back! Very nice beach with some beautiful views. There are signs about no swimming and there are no shells.

Excellent viewpoint located near the small town of Ballintoy on the North Antrim coast. Just a small lay-by and easy to miss, however the views are stunning of this dramatic coastline, including the small harbour of Portbradden on your left.

The bay is scenic and accessible from a National Trust carpark (next to a youth hostel). The walk down to the shore is a little tough for mobility impaired people, but the view is worth the try.

With its stunning views and white sand beaches, White Park Bay was a great stop during a day-long trip along the Antrim coast.

To me this beach is truly amazing and one that I go back to over and over again, whilst I've travelled to other countries and seen many other beaches, I still list White Park Bay as my favourite beach. The car parking is good and then it is a short stroll down a lane which is very easy to follow and whilst you can see the beach from the top and catch the odd glimpse or two on the way down, when you turn left at the bottom of the lane you realise the beauty of White Park Bay. Any time I drive along the coastal road I am sure to stop and make a visit, it is rarely very busy and offers a peace and tranquility that is indescribable unless you visit, when you visit then you know. Enjoy when you do go!

Beautiful beach and countryside. Unfortunately the toilets in the car park were disgusting overflowing with waste. Best avoid the beach until this is sorted.

Car parking is free, although not lots of spaces and so cars parked on approach road. The walk down to beach is relatively steep although there is a choice of steps for part of the walk or step free path. Beach is large and pretty with not many other people. Cows were on beach when we visited.

We decided to walk along beach and round headland to Ballintoy Harbour (as we had previously tried to park at Ballintoy Harbour car park and failed to find a space).

Beach walk was easy, although getting round rocks at headland was challenging. You need good balance/footwear and also go when it's not high tide. Once round the Headland and off rocks the pathway continues round to Ballintoy Harbour.

Overall a lovely walk, very pretty scenery. Just be careful on the rocks.

Narrow road by car (with areas to let oncoming car pass) down to the quaint little harbour, which is well worth a walk around and plunder across the rocks nearby. It is a must-see.
