Away from the centre the coast is magnificent and the hinterland verdant. There is plenty to see and do outdoors including Cairn Wood and Crawfordsburn Country Park.
For the little ‘uns there is Ark Open Farm or Pickie Fun Park and culture vultures have a cornucopia of wonderful heritage sites to choose from.

Moved on from Bangor, yacht well looked after while we were away, as I said before a little expensive, and they could have told me I could have setup a private contract before I left her there, little late now. So recommend you enquire if you going to be there for a while, could save a few hundred £.

A tidy marina, just spending one night on the way south but weather looking a little rough so better to stay a while. Lovely marina, large and well laid out. Office guys very friendly and helpful, local town great, food very good, good place to stay for a while, Marina facilities looking a little tired but all functional, night berth costs a little on the high side. Excellent place for a short stop over to recharge and set up for the next leg of the trip

Optimum Marine Surveys by John Heale
I recently used the services of Optimum Marine to carry out a survey of my vessel. Oli Byles carried out the survey and I found the service professional, informative and courteous. I would recommend this company. John Heale
