  Portstewart Strand....
by hasthetravelbug

Two miles of magnificent sandy beach and important dune system (180 acres) on Northern Ireland's north coast, facing the Atlantic ocean. The sandy beach is gently shelving and bordered to west and south by the River Bann, and to the east by seaside report of Portstewart. Car parking on the beach in a zoned section. A charge of 4 pounds per car and 12 pounds for a mini bus.
I didn't get to the beach by car because of the high parking cost but if you have a National Trust membership, parking is free.
You can park your car just up the hill and walk down to the strand if you're strapped for cash.

Directions: Nearest town is Portstewart. Access roads include A2 or B185 for access via car. Ulster bus no 218 travels from Belfast to Portstewart. Cycle route (NLN) 93 passes Portstewart Strand
