Lovely easy walk by the marina and Pickie. Good flat surface makes it suitable for all ages and abilities and for push chairs etc. plenty of seats if you need a rest or want to enjoy the view. Must get out for a walk today!

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.

This is a winding path around the coast line of the Belfast Lough, the scenery is excellent.If you like wild flowers, wild seabirds, or simple listen to the sea, then is worth spending a few hours, you wont be disappointed.

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
