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

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