Bangor Marina is the largest marina in Northern Ireland and is situated on the southern shores of Belfast Lough close to the Irish Sea cruising routes. The Marina has become well known since opening in 1989 for providing a berth in the centre of Bangor. The Marina has been awarded Five Anchors by the Yachting Harbour Association.

International tourist attractions such as the Ulster Folk and Transport Museum and North Down Museum are close by.

The Marina itself provides all the usual facilities.

Also based at the Marina are HM Coastguard's Marine Rescue Sub Centre and the Royal National Lifeboat Institution's Atlantic 85 Lifeboat 'Jessie Hillyard'.
