Whitepark Bay (White Park Bay)

Whitepark Bay - County Antrim
© Anne Burgess and licensed for reuse under this Licence

Magnificent arc of white sand between two headlands on a relatively secluded stretch of the North Antrim Coast. The headlands provide some shelter from prevailing winds and on the right conditions this is a popular spot with surfers.

The beach and locale are a haven for wildlife with the dunes behind the beach teeming with wild flowers in the summer months. White Park Bay and much of the nearby coast are under the stewardship of the National Trust.

A hidden gem

This is my happy place in NI!
You would be forgiven for thinking you are on foreign holidays thanks to the spectacular views, golden sand and turquoise water.
We absolutely love the fact that due to the position of the beach no cars are anywhere near it. For the same reason I would recommend that anyone with mobility issues and very young children could do with some helpers to navigate the steep(ish) walk from the car park to the beach.
The tiny car park can be busy but I ‚Äčnever had to wait longer than 10mins for a free spot. No toilets though!

What did we get wrong?
