The Causeway Coastal Route follows the north coast of Northern Ireland.
Beginning at the northern end of the M5 it takes the A2 through Carrickfergus, Larne and Glenarm to Ballycastle. From Ballycastle it takes the B15 to get closer to the coast and loops off the A2 a second time on the B146 to serve Giant's Causeway, which names the route. After taking the A2 through Bushmills and Portrush, it leaves the A2 for the third time at Portstewart, taking the B185, the A29 Coleraine bypass and the B201 to get around Coleraine. A fourth detour off the A2 occurs north of Limavady, where the Coastal Route takes the B69 via Crindle. The route ends at the Caw Roundabout where the A2 meets the Derry bypass (A514/A515) and the beginning of the Wild Atlantic Way.
