Castlerock Strand

The small resort of Castlerock has a long strand (beach) stretching eastwards to Barmouth, where the river Bann's estuary draws flocks of migratory birds and birdwatchers.

It's an excellent place for surfing, and you can stop for a drink and a bite to eat at Bertha's Bar (known locally as Love's) at the beginning of the promenade. 

There's a championship golf course nearby, and is a relaxing area in which to boat, fish or walk. The beautiful beach at Castlerock with dunes which back onto the golf course and attractions at nearby Downhill, offer some of the most scenic views in Northern Ireland.
