Relatively flat scenic coastline

North Down Coastal Path extends from Holywood in the west to Orlock in the east. The path passes through coastline and parkland. Historic relics and flora and fauna are found in abundance, including the grey seals which can be spotted offshore.

** With the assistance of grant aid from DARD, North Down Borough Council are currently carrying out coastal path improvement works at Seahill to replace the existing steep steps with sections of upgraded path and an elevated walkway. 
In the interests of public safety and in order to facilitate the works, it has been necessary to temporarily close off a section of the coastal path whilst works progress. It is anticipated that the project will complete late Spring 2015 and that the path will be closed throughout the duration of the contract with the exception of the Christmas period between 20 December 2014 and 5 January 2015.
