Ballywalter Beach

Ballywalter beach is actually two beaches but it is the long south sandy beach that draws most visitors, with rock pools and never too crowded.

Ballywalter is a village situated on the east (Irish Sea) coast of the Ards Peninsula.

Facilities include small playground nearby, grass areas behind the beach, car parking and toilets.

Ballywalter Beach has been awarded a regional Seaside Award.
