Portstewart

 

Portstewart Cresent

The second largest resort on the North Coast, Portstewart is a passing parade of things to see and do. Watch the world go by from one of the famed ice-cream parlours or restaurants. Stroll along the famous Portstewart strand, two miles long and a favourite with all ages. The cliff walk is also an invigorating experience. Browse in the colourful craft and gift shops, or enjoy an afternoon's golf, tennis or bowls. There's also the Crescent Complex where paddling and boating pools, adventure playgrounds and an electric car circuit will keep kids amused for hours. Add a splash of culture to your holiday with a visit to the Flowerfield Arts Centre, home to music recitals, exhibitions and craft displays. Then let the night weave its special magic as a series of festive lights illuminate the promenade.

 

The Crescent

Portstewart Crescent has recently been refurbished in a style similar to that of the Epcott Centre in Florida. Visitors can now enjoy a fountain, the first of its kind in Europe, which hosts thirty three streaming musical jets which are synchronised to music creating a magical experience during show times. Reaching heights of up to 4 metres, with multi coloured lights and a variety of tunes it is spectacular and appeals to both children and adults alike.

The play area has also been refurbished with a flavour of the Epcott Centre and the newly designed cafe provides teas and refreshments, along with an outdoor covered seating and viewing area.  By popular demand, the paddling pool and boating lake have been retained, along with the small cart area and the bandstand.
