Bathing Water Profile: Ballywalter

Ballywalter beach is actually comprised of two beaches located on the east coast of the Ards peninsula. However, it is the long south sandy beach that attracts most visitors.  The northern end of the beach is protected by a small harbour and slipway.  It also has a pirate ship play area and a picnic area. There are two rivers which flow across the beach near the southern end.   

A point of interest: It features lime kilns which date back to the 1800s which were used to heat the lime brought ashore and the resultant powdered lime was then used to white-wash the local cottages.
