We took my daughter and her pony to Whitepark on a lovely September evening. The setting couldnt have been nicer...Sun, beautiful waves and an unspoilt beach ...with Dunluce Castle in the background, and the gorgeous Antrim coast. If visiting the area...its a must!!

we visited on sun 24th aug 14,i was quite disappointed by the amount of litter and dog problems that where left on the paths and the beach itself,we have been here a few times and really enjoyed the quietness and unspoilt scenery,but that was in winter,it seems that during the summer some visitors dont clean up after themselves.still worth going...

This is well worth a stop for a quiet morning walk. There are lots of nesting birds, long beaches, interesting rocks, and, if you're early enough, cows hanging out along the water.

We decided to try this beach as a little walking spot, we weren't disappointed.Stunning beach with huge rocks in the middle and plenty of pebbles to skim, its a very quiet place aside from the waves and along with myself and girlfriend there were at most 10 people on the entire beach.

Cold, wet day when we went but still a most stunning beach worth a visit. Looked like it might be a bit of a struggle to swim in, except on a very calm day.

Originally planned to eat a picnic lunch at Ballintoy, but spotted this large arc of white sand from the beach, with apparently nobody on it. It's a 5-minute walk down a steep trail to get there - which maybe puts people off - and you've got the whole beach and dunes to yourself. There was only a small herd of... More

White Park Bay, with its surroundings, was saved from commercial development by the Youth Hostel Association Northern Ireland in 1937, when they purchased it after a public appeal which they initiated in 1935. On purchase, they immediately removed the charge for accessing the beach, and when they gifted the beach and surrounding lands to the National Trust in 1939, insisted... More

This secluded beach lies off the causeway coastal route just 6 miles east of the busy Giant's causeway. We stayed in a B&B in Whitepark bay and we returned to this beach three times over two days. There were hardly any people around and that was quite surprising because it was right in between the Carrick-a-rede rope bridge and the... More

Such amazing waves!! Stunning beach .... No need to travel to far flung places, we have it all on our doorstep. The beach was empty when we went, ok so it was a cold day, but still so peaceful - could watch those amazing crashing waves all day. This is a must visit when in Northern Island .

I'm from County Antrim and have been here many times. I remember there used to be wild horses there. Great beach for getting away from the crowds but not safe for swimming...Have a paddle instead.
