Waterways | Strangford Loch

Folklore has it that there are 365 islands in Strangford Lough, one for every day of the year. The great thing is that you don't have to count them from the shore - there are boat trips that'll take you out to see them.

Three hundred and fifty million litres of water flow in and out of Strangford Lough twice daily so it's perhaps no surprise that it's one of the richest marine environments in Europe.
