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.
getting to the start
To most exciting way to get to Islandmagee is to take the
short ferry ride from Larne. The boats, called the Mary-Ann or
the Adrienne, depart from Larne harbour close to the main
ferry terminal and the journey takes only one minute. Take
care when embarking and disembarking with your bicycle.
