Ballintoy Harbour

This is a very attractive spot. The harbour itself is very well maintained, made of granite stone, and is quite picturesque.  Surrounding the harbour are plenty of rocks and rock pools for children to explore. There is car parking, toilets and a nice café

For the swimmers, from the car park you walk back up the road a short distance and there is an entrance which will lead you down a rough track to a small, secluded beach. This is a well sheltered spot for pick-nicking and swimming. The sand is good, the water is clear and it makes for a quiet contrast to the harbour itself which can be very busy in the summer. When the weather is good expect the car park to be full.

Ballintoy is located off the A2, which runs along the coast of Antrim, and is one of the finest roads to pass along in Ireland. Coming from Larne you pass some spectacular scenery and the lovely towns of Cushendall and Ballycastle. A few miles beyond Ballycastle a sign-posted right turn off the A2 brings you down a twisty road to Ballintoy Harbour.
