The National Trust in Northern Ireland
Situated on the beautiful North Anrtim Coast, White Park Bay is a curved golden beach backed by limestone cliffs, nestling between Port Braddan's pretty harbour and a 'raised beach' leading th Ballintoy harbour. Everything about White Park Bay is special: its history, biodiversity and tranquil character. Even the sand is special - the roundness of the grains makes it 'sing' as you walk along the beach! The National Trust acquired White Park Bay at the beginning of the Second World War and has endeavoured to protect it ever since.
