The Causeway Coast Way (CCW) follows a waymarked route along the spectacular north coast of Ireland between Portstewart in the west and Ballycastle in the east. It passes through the Causeway Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, a World Heritage Site at the Giant's Causeway and several Areas of Special Scientific Interest (ASSIs).
This 52km (33 miles) route incorporates the Port Path between Portstewart and Portrush, and the North Antrim Cliff Path, both of which constitute the Ulster Way in this part of the Province. The route traverses stunning coastal landscapes connecting the coastal communities of Portstewart, Portrush, Portballintrae, Bushmills, Ballintoy and Ballycastle, The majority of the route is off-road, following coastal paths, beaches and cliff paths, although significant sections remain on-road.
The route offers opportunity for enjoyment to walkers of varied abilities from those who aim to walk the whole Way to those who prefer to wander along shorter sections.
Car parking is available along the entire route, both in the towns and villages and at specific parking/view points along the coast. The Causeway Coast is accessible by train and bus services (the 'Causeway Rambler' bus service [service 376] operates during the summer months). See below for contact details.
