Unesco site on the North Antrim Coast


Step onto the amazing columns of interlocking bassalt stones rolling down from the headland to the Atlantic sea - thousands and thousands of them! With enough energy and good weather a trip to the flat headland will reveal a true panoramic view of this amazing natural formation.
The beauty of the Antrim Coast has just received a number one recommendation from Lonely Planet - its long flat headlands, white chalk cliffs and castle ruins make up this beautiful landscape.
Enjoy some homemade tea loaf, sandwiches and cakes in one of the many local cafe's along the way or maybe take the time to enjoy a quick shot of local Bushmills Whiskey distilled in the area since 1608.
County Antrim is a very vibrant farming area something which is evident in the neat hedge bound fields of cows and sheep along the way.
