The quiet fishing village of Carnlough is set at the foot of the Antrim Glens. As well as a pretty harbour Carnlough has a pleasant sandy beach that stretches around the bay.

Towards the village end the beach tends to disappear under the high tide whereas there is still some sandy beach further down.
