With undoubtedly the best views of all Hostelling International's six NI properties, this beauty overlooks the crescent beach from which it takes its name. In fact, those Atlantic views take in Rathlin Island and, on a clear day, Scotland. En-suite bedrooms with hairdryers and tea/coffee facilities, free parking, log fire TV lounge and a picnic area with that to-die-for vista make this an outstanding find. The Giant's Causeway, Old Bushmills Distillery and Carrick-A-Rede Rope Bridge are among the vicinity's myriad sightseeing highlights. An absolute gem.
