Ballyholme beach is a long sloping sandy beach and great for bathing and picnics. Parking is a bit restricted so get along early on a good day

This is a lovely place and if our weather was a bit warmer it would be outstanding! The coastline from Bangor up to Donaghadee is worth driving along and hug the sea for as much as possible.

This place was dog poop paradise,you literally had to watch your feet.Don't know what type of people walk their dogs here.Will not under any circumstances be back.Bangor sea front has the odd irresponsible dog walker but not on the scale .
