Watch the tankers , boats and yachts pass in the distance. Great fresh air and a stunning walk. Be brave and take a dip but the water is very cold! It's free and it's fabulous and well worth doing. Take the kids, the dogs or the hubby/wife - it's family friendly or equally as good doing it solo. Walk it,... More

This is a lovely stroll on a nice day, they have recently tidied the place up a bit as it was starting to go down hill. Lots of weeds around the edges and litter but they have improved it recently and all seems well again. Bring your camera on a sunny day and walk on round to Jenny watts cave... More

As always, an excellent walk, invigorating with lots to see and do. I remember it from years ago, and each visit is different and full of family memories.

This was a great walk to take after Christmas dinner in the Marine Court Hotel. Love the coastline, and the view across the Lough and to Scotland.

An excellent walk way which is suitable for young and the old. Plenty to do for kids such as Pickie park, exploring the rocks and rock pools or enjoying the sandy beaches at Ballyhome , Helensbay or Crawfordsburn. Carnalea golf course rolls down to the path and there is always boars out on the bay. It is a good idea... More

The Coastal Walk is one of the most beautiful places in Co Down. A variety of distances are available - Bangor to Stricklands Glen, Crawfordsburn, Helens Bay or for the more ambitious walker, Bangor to Holywood. Magnificent scenery. Interesting landmarks. A pleasant restaurant is situated in Crawfordsburn Country Park. Return journeys are available by train from Helens Bay or Holywood.... More

Flat and even the whole way along and an undisturbed sea view worthy of top British sea side resorts, but much quieter. If energetic, follow with a walk along Ballyholme Beach.

Walking along the harbour is amazing; big cargo ships, small fishing ships, mixed with a dash of history, green hills and, in the distance, a view of Scotland!
