White Park Bay is a scenic stretch of North Coast shoreline. This white arc of sand sits between two headlands. It's sheltered by ancient dunes and backed by chalk cliffs. It's a unique habitat for animals and birds. It's notable for its orchids. So why take the children? At White Park Bay kids can run free. Fly kites, find fossils, collect shells, build sandcastles and enjoy a picnic.
Getting There
 
White Park Bay is located 6.5 miles (10.5 km) east of Bushmills and 7.5 miles (12 km) west of Ballycastle. The White Park Bay car park is accessible from the A2. UlsterBus 376, sometimes referred to as the Causeway Rambler, stops at White Park Bay. The beach is on the Causeway Coast Way, one of Northern Ireland's best-known walking trails, and Route 93 of the National Cycle Network. White Park Bay is also reachable on a low spring tide from Portbraddon and Ballintoy via the beach. The Ordnance Survey grid reference is D062450.
Things to Keep in Mind
 
The beach at White Bay Park isn't safe for swimming as it's plagued by strong rip currents.
