Drains 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.

Go to the NI Direct website to find the water quality results that this beach has achieved this season.

Please remember to check the weather forecast and sea conditions before visiting beaches.
