Surfers don’t tend to share their secret spots but the word about Portrush is now out there and whether you are a complete novice or a seasoned ripper you won’t be disappointed.  

Portrush’s 3 beaches have each been awarded Blue Flag status and they are known locally as West Strand, East Strand and Whiterocks.  Each of the beaches have their own unique qualities and will not fail to impress.

In addition to this they all have nearby parking and during July and August there are lifeguards present during the day within designated areas.

There are also a number of local surf shops in Portrush where lessons can be organised, surf gear including wetsuits hired and some great advice given about where’s best to go, as well as the local surf report.

Surfing is an extreme sport but can be fun for all the family when beach safety is followed.
