Glenarm Beach

Glenarm beach is within a sheltered sandy bay. To one end of the beach separated by a bridge over the river is a picturesque limestone harbour, this deep harbour has fully serviced pontoon berths available for resident and visiting yachts.

The village of Glenarm is a conservation area and the main street leads to Glenarm Forest. Glenarm Forest Park is an 800-acre (3.2 km2) nature preserve once part of the demesne of Glenarm Castle, but now a public park and maintained by the Ulster Wildlife Trust.

The name Glenarm means “valley of the army”.

Facilities include parking, grass areas, harbour, slipway, children’s play area and places to eat a short walk into the village.
