Next on my list is the enchanting Whiterocks Beach, Portrush. Picture this: your little ones running along the dramatic limestone cliffs, their laughter echoing in the air while you capture those precious moments. And those amazing rock formations create a unique and almost magical backdrop for your shots, adding a touch of whimsy and adventure. What’s great about Whiterocks is that it offers a fantastic mix of stunning natural features that add that extra wow factor to your family photos. You can even grab a well-deserved ice-cream after your photo session.
