​Make a splash this summer at Mid and East Antrim’s Beach Bonanzas

Mid and East Antrim Borough Council is pushing the boat out with three Beach Bonanza events for you to stick your oar into this summer.

Three events are happening throughout June, July and August.

Why not try your hand at stand-up paddle boarding or give sea kayaking a go? There are coastal rowing boats, scavenger hunts and even driftwood workshops happening so there really is something for everyone.

This year, the Council has also teamed up with the RNLI to share information all about water safety and the work they do.

  • Carnlough Beach Bonanza – Sunday 23 June 2019, 11am – 3pm – Stand up paddle boarding, sea kayaking and coastal rowing. Beach activities include playzone, beach sports zone, driftwood art workshops, competitions and scavenger hunts.
  • Glenarm Beach Bonanza – Sunday 28 July 2019, 10am – 2pm – Stand up paddle boarding, sea kayaking and coastal rowing.
  • Ballygally Beach Bonanza – Sunday 11 August 2019, 12pm – 4pm – Stand-up paddle boarding, sea kayaking and coastal rowing. There will also be scavenger hunts, driftwood workshops, beach sports and water safety advice from RNLI.
