Ards Peninsula

Recommended
Ards Peninsula is a narrow tongue of land 37km long and 5 to 8km wide. Owing to its soil and climate, the low-lying land is one of the best grain-producing regions of Ireland. Sandy beaches and occasional rocky outcrops line the coast road. One of Ulster's three fishing fleets is based at Portavogie, where fish is sold on the quayside. The southern end of the peninsula is covered with moors and marshland.
