Owner description: Miles of golden sand cared for by National Trust. The magnificent two-mile strand of glistening golden sand is one of Northern Ireland's finest and most popular beaches with all ages. Portstewart Strand holds the prestigious Blue Flag award for the management, cleanliness and quality of water and it is also one of the few remaining beaches in Ireland where cars still have access and permission to drive onto the beach. Vehicle access is free to National Trust members. Parking fee applies to non-members. Walking entry open all year.

“Most wonderful stretch of beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

While touring the Causeway coast thought we would pop down to see this stretch of beach as we have NT membership. Not sure the charge for non members but if the weather is good well worth a visit. Not many places where you can still find two miles of beautiful sand with hardly anyone else there!

“As NT members you must visit!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2014

Spent a pleasant day here over Easter in and amongst many other beach goers! The difference here is you can drive your car onto the beach and as such have everything you need right next to you!

They have a nice wee shop with kites and other beach stuff and don't exploit their position with prices of ice cream etc.

Highly recommended!!

“A lovely stretch of beach.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2014

Not swimming or sunbathing weather when we visited, although some youngsters were braving the surf and several families were building sand castles, but a good walk with a bracing wind, good views and parking on the beach.
