Paddle in the surf along the mile long beach, a long time favourite for families to take a dip and build sand castles.
The terraces of handsome houses along the esplanade provide a pleasant backdrop to bracing walks along the promenade towards Ballymacormick Point.
At the east end of the sandy beach of Ballyholme Bay is the narrow track through Ballymacormick Point. The gorse scrub, shingle beaches, rocky islets and coves offer a wilder area and escape from the crowds.
