Season: autumn

Mill Strand, also known as West Strand, sits just to the west of Ramore Head in Portrush, in front of the railway station.  This is a Blue Flag beach, regularly cleaned and with excellent bathing water quality.  There’s an attractive harbour at the northern end and the town is most welcoming and geared up for visitors.  A large car park and toilets are close by and there is a long promenade that runs behind the beach.  In short, Mill Strand is attractive, characterful and convenient.
