Lovely views over belfast lough, It is possible to walk all the way to Stricklands Glen, Crawfordsburn, Helens bay and beyond depending on the weather. Views change all the time depending on the weather and it is possible to see some beautiful sunsets and sunrises.

Regularly walk this fine coastal path. The path itself is, for the most part tarmacked, Excellent views over Belfast Lough. Estimated walking times are Bangor to Helens Bay 55 minutes. Bangor to Crawfordsburn 45 minutes, Bangor to Carnalea 30 minutes. Refreshments at Crawfordsburn country park. Also, worth the detour, is the Crawfordsburn Inn ( and get the train back to... More

Suitable for prams, wheelchairs, joggers, and birdwatchers. This coastal path goes gently up and down. If it's windy, it'll blow your head off. If it's calm you might just not stopping walking till you reach Belfast. Cycling at the weekend isn't great as you'll have to go very slowly on account of the walkers but at other times great. Brilliant... More

we love to walk along this winding coastal path, which has many twists and turns and interesting things to see including Sandpipers and Oystercatchers as well as the odd Ringed Plover. Eider Ducks are often just off the shoreline too. It's a gentle walk and can be easily accessed from a number of the stations which are on the Belfast... More

The Costal path is a brilliant public works project that has created one of the loveliest places for a stroll for residents and visitors. The small over looks are gorgeous and it is always packed with locals, bikers, walkers, runners, and dogs. yet there is enough space for all.
