Murlough Bay, County Antrim

Murlough Bay is one of the most picturesque locations in Antrim, if not Northern Ireland. Take the narrow winding Murlough Road towards the coast and eventually you’ll reach a very sharp turn that leads downhill to a secluded parking spot.

If like me you’re there with your camera bag, and the rain’s holding back, expect to stay a while. I’ve just been myself and enjoyed every peaceful uncomplicated second of it. I arrived very early and was fortunate enough to have the bay to myself for several hours. Definitely worth a visit if you’re touring around County Antrim.
