Situated just off the Causeway Coastal Route, Whiterocks Coastal Park enjoys a stunning natural location, with limestone cliffs stretching from Curran Strand to Dunluce Castle.
On a year-round basis, the beach is a magnet for water sports enthusiasts, especially surfers, but body boarders and surf kayakers are also regular visitors. A seasonal on site surf outlet provides equipment for hire.
The beach is also very popular with walkers to and from Portrush along the continuous stretch of sand from East Strand to Whiterocks. Enjoy the new section cliff path, part of the Ulster Way / Causeway Coast Way, which offers stunning views both east and west.
What you see of the White Rocks from the land is only a fraction of what lies below the cliffs where time has shaped some truly spectacular caves and arches. Victorian holiday makers would visit these locations frequently to picnic during the summer months, as many old postcards of the area depicted.
Whiterocks Beach frequently attains the prestigious Blue Flag Award, most recently in 2020.
Aly is a Northern Irish based Artist, Writer and Educator. One of Northern Ireland’s top artists, widely known for her Belfast prints and impressionist techniques. She has several accolades to her name, most recently:
> Nominated 40 under 40
> Listed as top 100 / Small Business Saturday
> Finalist in the East Side Awards
Aly works from a studio near Belfast which is conducive to her family life with her husband and their three young boys.
She is passionate about placing importance on everyday moments, objects and places in her oil paintings and pastel work. This is one of the many reasons Aly is a well established artist in Belfast, Northern Ireland and the United States of America.
Her practice is influenced heavily by her own childhood memories of growing up in a smallholding in the Irish countryside.
Themes of the familiar and familial can be traced back as far as her degree show in 2003 when her installation “Daddy’s bread” used 795 empty bread bags (of her father’s favourite loaf) to represent each week from when her Father passed until the opening of her final exhibition.
Aly was awarded a first class honours degree and a distinction in her Masters in Fine Art which she completed following her degree. Specializing in Acrylic, oil and Mixed Media Aly has a love for creating stunning vibrant paintings. Along with a love of monochrome and simple sketches.

I use art in all it’s mediums to express my love for the “everyday”. Coffee cups, familiar landmarks, colour associations. All of these, I believe, contribute to what is known as our “everyday”. Not only do I love drawing them, I think they are worth placing importance on.
