Waterfoot Beach

Waterfoot Beach - County Antrim

This long strip of sand at the foot of the Antrim Glens is one of the most popular on this stretch of the Co Antrim coast. Despite its relative popularity Waterfoot beach still manages to retain a fairly tranquil laid-back feel.
Backed by extensive dunes to the southern end of the beach and the village of Waterfoot to the north.

The backdrop of Glenariff makes for some impressive scenery, particularly the view looking southwards along the beach.
