1. The Causeway Coast and Belfast have been voted as the #1 Region to Visit by Lonely Planet in 2018.
Hike the Causeway Coast for strange geology and stunning landscapes.
Surpassing the likes of Alaskan wilderness and the gorgeous landscapes of the south of France, Lonely Planet has indeed chosen the Causeway Coast and Belfast as the #1 region to explore this year. Reasons cited for this choice is Belfast’s amazing transformation from “streets dogged by sectarian violence” to streets now full of hip neighbourhoods that burst with bars, restaurants and venues to suit all tastes.” Lonely Planet praises the “timeless beauty” and “famous rocks” of the Causeway Coast.
One of the best ways to enjoy the Causeway Coast is on foot – though it is a long distance trail that is 33 miles (52 km) long and will take about 3 days to complete, it’s possible to simply hike sections of the Causeway Coast, and still immerse yourself in the beauty of the place.
