Portstewart is one of those long open beaches that looks as if it goes on forever.
As you enter the beach there is one area to the right which has some shelter and is a car free zone. Otherwise you can drive up the beach and park wherever you like. That’s one of our pet hates but it does make access easier. However, it’s a long beach, good for walking and if you are prepared for I some exercise you can get beyond most of the cars.
The water when we were there was a bit choppy and not great for swimming. Undoubtedly refreshing but more of a surfers beach. You will find some shelter in the dunes but otherwise bring your windbreak. There is loads of room here so it’s a good place for families.
Blue Flag beach with its own coffee shop at the entrance.
Coming from Coleraine take the A2 for Portstewart. As you approach the town you will see signposts for the beach.
