White Park Bay

nr Bushmills, Co. Antrim

Quick Guide
See below grid for details

Two miles of sandy beach along the north Antrim coast plays host to several spectacular volcanic outcrops including 'Elephant Rock'. Believed to be one of the first settlements of man in Ireland, with remnants showing themselves on the exposed raised beach and sand dune system. A sheltered bay but it does contain rip currents which you should watch out for if you decide to venture into the sea.

The beach forms a white arc between two headlands, it is a secluded location backed by ancient dunes which provide a habitat for bird and animal life, as well as carpeted in rare plants including many orchids. It is 10 minutes drive from another Northern Ireland popular landmark, Giants Causeway.

Today it is owned by the National Trust.

This page is a Quick Guide, the idea of Quick Guides is to allow very basic information and linking forward information to be added to the system rather than having to wait until a full location guide has been developed. It should therefore be considered a development stage rather than a finished objective. Once more information is known the objective is to create either a Location or Featured Location page which has two grids and far more information.

Please let us know any other information that we can add to the Further information and Planning Grids or page and any errors that you discover. Before making a long trip to any location it is always wise to double check the current information, websites like magazines may be correct at the time the information is written, but things change and it is of course impossible to double check all entries on a regular basis. If you have any good photographs that you feel would improve the illustration of this page then please let us have copies. In referring to this page it is helpful if you quote the CIN Page Ref at the bottom of the Planning Grid above. To print the planning grid select it then right click and print the selected area.

Please submit information on locations you discover so that this system continues to grow.
