Carnlough Beach

Carnlough beach is within the small fishing village of Carnlough in County Antrim.

It’s a sandy beach with good facilities in the nearby town and there are plenty of good walks nearby going along the coastline.

There is no lifeguard service here and the beach close to the village goes under water at high tide so ask a local about tides before you plan a day there. It’s a good spot for canoeing, swimming, surfing and walking.

Parking isn’t bad and there are two play areas for the kids as well as picnic tables and loos!

Carnlough Beach has been awarded a regional Seaside Award.
