Castlerock Beach

UK»Northern Ireland»Castlerock Beach

Castlerock Beach: Backing onto the tranquil village of Castlerock, the 1 km long sandy beach is flanked to the west by sea cliffs at Downhill and to the east by the Lower Bann estuary (Barmouth), with lots of rockpools to explore. The dunes extend inland past the popular Castlerock Golf links, past the National Trust-owned Bird Sanctuary at Grangemore and as far inland as Articlave to the earliest dated sand dunes in Ireland (5-6,000 ya).

The beach is part of the Bann Estuary Area of Special Scientific Interest (includes Portstewart dunes system) by virtue of flora and fauna as well as important physiographical features (landforms) including the dunes which contain important information about past climatic and sea level changes.
