Visited this beach with family, really clean and well maintained, lifeguards on duty.. Definitely worth a visit, so handy being able to take the car onto the beach, everything is at hand instead of having to carry it all and watch a child..

Portstewart Strand goes on and on so if you fancy a long uninterrupted walk it's just the job and at the end, to be fair, there is the Bann Estuary and a walk out to the end of the 'mole' to catch site of Dolphins...More

Have visited the Strand on many occasions over the years, however, on 5th and 6th May the toilets were closed and portable toilets were in place and the smell was horrendous!!
