Place Category: Beaches
Portrush Whiterocks Beach (East Strand) is backed by long white limestone cliffs that have been carved into arches and caves that fascinate visitors.
A lot of the arches have been named like the Wishing Arch and the Lion’s Paw and you can sit here on the grassy patches all along the beach and enjoy fantastic ocean views and great spots for the ultimate beach picnics. Watersports are popular here and you’ll spot surfers and surf hire shops as well as the odd cafe.
The 3 miles of Whiterocks beach stretch from East Strand in Portrush to Dunluce Castle.
On the main coast road, you will find pull-in areas and a large car park where you can take in the incredible views of the headlands to the Giant’s Causeway and back to Portrush and Donegal.
Facilities include parking, toilets and cafe.
Whiterocks Beach is a Blue Flag Beach.
Dogs banned July and August.
