51 km / 32 miles

Antrim, Derry
The Causeway Coast Way passes sandy beaches, rocky bays, high cliffs, resorts and villages, offering a great variety of coastal scenery within the Causeway Coast AONB. Sites of interest include the ruins of Dunluce and Dunseverick Castles, the exposed Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge and the Giant's Causeway World Heritage Site. Cooling volcanic lava formed the remarkable Giant's Causeway's 40,000 basalt columns 60 million years ago.

Check tide times to avoid walking past White Park Bay at high tide otherwise the A2 road must be followed from Dunseverick village to Ballintoy.

The path connects with the Moyle Way at Ballycastle.

The Causeway Coast Way is one of ten Waymarked Ways, a series of accredited walking routes that pass through some of the most beautiful scenery in the country ranging in length from 20 to 47 miles. These walking routes with waymarked posts have excellent infrastructure in place. Interpretation panels throughout the walks provide interesting information on local history, natural features and wildlife. The Waymarked Ways are: Antrim Hills Way, Causeway Coast Way, Cuilcagh Way, Lecale Way, Mourne Way, Moyle Way, Newcastle Way, Newry Canal Way, Ring of Gullion Way and Sliabh Beagh Way.
