Beaches and Coastline

Drain’s Bay

Drain’s Bay is located 6km north of Larne a short distance before the entrance into Carnfunnock Country Park. 

There are no shops in this quiet village but it has a sizeable car park, public toilets and a 1km off-road path leading from the car park directly into the Country Park which has a café and camping and caravan site amongst many other attractions.

The beach is across the Antrim Coast Road and over a grassy bank which is level and suitable for a wheelchair to be situated.
