Lovely stretch of sand and so unexpected in Northern Ireland. Naturally we didn’t swim as it was very cold but it looked like great waves but it was still pleasant for a swim. Plenty of free parking as well.

Amazing beach on the gold coast. Plenty of golden sand to lay your towels and set up camp for the day. If your a lover of intense heat then wind breaker will be key

Approx 190 car parking spaces available but on a sunny day be earlier as spaces will fill up fast

Beside car park is nice big grass area for those who like a sea view but arent too keen on getting sand everywhere

Toilet and shower facilities available

West Strand is a perfect location. You can surf, stand up paddleboard, swim (although watch out for the rip tide). There is a great walkway into Portrush or you can head up over Juniper Hill to Portstewart. Only downside is the limited parking.
