More Information...

Whilst it is a bit of a stretch to describe the Giant's Causeway itself as a beach it just about qualifies and given its significance we didn't want to leave it out. The Causeway is named after the naturally formed interlocking hexagonal basalt columns that act as stepping stones down from the cliff to the sea. Legend has it these columns were placed here by local giant, Finn McCool, in an attempt to build a bridge to Scotland. Whatever the origin the Giant's Causeway is one of Britain's greatest natural wonders and Northern Ireland's most visited attraction.
