Located on the Ards Peninsula’s east coast, this is a popular location for day trips to the beach, with excellent seaside facilities. The man-made sea lagoon is refreshed by seawater at every high tide, there is a large car park, many picnic tables, promenade, green spaces and stretches of natural shoreline for exploring. The southern half of the shoreline is sandy, ideal for sandcastles and paddling, while the northern half is a rocky shoreline, with many rock-pools for exploring. The area has been awarded Seaside Awards for its facilities and water quality, please take care when visiting as there is no lifeguard service at Millisle Beach.

Children should be sure to visit the Pirate Ship and Play-park, where they can burn off some extra energy before heading home.

The village of Millisle is a short walk away where you can treat yourself to chips, eating them straight from the paper in the fresh air, or an ice-cream, while sitting on a park bench watching the world go by. Other nearby facilities include public toilets and play park.
