Glenarm is a thin, mostly pebble beach, stretching for about 300 meters from a small river mouth and the village harbour at the eastern end towards the end of the village to the west. Sitting at the foot of the Glens of Antrim the beach enjoys excellent views of the surrounding hills and headlands along the coast.
The beach is known to be a good spot for fishing, whilst boating trips from the harbour are popular. The Glens of Antrim offer excellent walking terrain.
Towards the village centre at the eastern end of the beach, visitors will find a car park with public toilets nearby and a grassy area overlooking the beach that is suitable for picnics, complete with a large children’s play area. The village offers a selection of pubs, shops, and places to stay.

Glenarm Beach Reviews
Not a beach as such -unless you're really desperate!

Glenarm is a really lovely small town with a castle.
No one visits the “beach” for more than 5 minutes.
Nice adjacent children’s play area overlooking the sea (and attached to the car park) is the only attraction to the “beach”
