Situated on the world-famous Antrim Coast Road you will find Ballygally Beach, nestled under the Sallagh Braes and home to the historic Ballygally Castle.

No one can dispute the beauty of the Antrim Coast, an area steeped in history, culture and myth... but truly unforgiving for the unprepared.
Challenging open water swimming conditions, a relentless cycling route through the Glens of Antrim, a gradual ascending trail run up to Scawt Peak then concluding with a descent through the Sallagh Braes - are all part of your journey to the finish line at the White Bear Rock.
