Located in the seaside town of Bangor, a mile long crescent of sandy beach curving along the bay
Paddle in the surf along the mile long beach, a long time favourite for families to take a dip and build sandcastles!
The mile long crescent of sandy beach curving along the shore of Ballyholme bay has been a favourite sea bathing spot for generations. Nowadays it is used all year round by wet suited windsurfers who come from all over Northern Ireland to skim along its waves in the breeze. Children love to paddle here and build sand castles, it is the perfect place for a family day out with bucket and spade.
The terraces of handsome houses along the Esplanade provide a pleasant backdrop to bracing walks along the promenade towards Ballymacormick Point.
Ballymacormick Point, this rocky outcrop is located between Ballyholme and the little village of Groomsport. Covered in gorse, it is good for rough walking and for spotting birds, flowers and foxes.
