Islandmagee

Cycling Route

This cycling route takes you to popular Brown's Bay Beach.

Bay which has a very pleasant coastal walk and is also good

for swimming. Further on, you take the road to the picturesque

secluded fishing harbour of Port Muck which is at the foot of

a very steep road. Islandmagee which is a peninsula and not

actually an island has a host of interesting historical sites, is

popular for horse-riding and has good coastal walking paths

north of Whitehead.
