Attraction Information

If you’re looking for a sandy beach in Northern Ireland, Ballycastle beach is a great spot, plus the water is brilliant for a spot of swimming. 

Don‘t forget your bucket and spade, because the sand is a great opportunity for some sandcastles, a top tip from us is to use the sea water to create a moat to protect your castle! There’s a popular fishing point here to teach the kids how to fish, and for those looking for adventure, it’s a great surfing spot too. 

  • Sandy beach 
  • Dogs allowed (must be kept under control in summer)
  • Safe swimming spot
