Whitepark Bay (White Park Bay)

Whitepark Bay - County Antrim

© Anne Burgess and licensed for reuse under this Creative Commons 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.
