Located 3km along the coast road from Donaghdee is the seaside village of Millisle. This was originally a fishing village but is now the base for a number of large caravan sites and holiday homes which double the permanent population of 1400 every summer. The main attraction is the fine strand beside the village where Ards Borough Council has opened a beach park. Millisle itself has a number of amusement arcades as well as picnic areas and children's play facilities. Just inland from the village is the restored Ballycopeland Windmill. A popular feature for tourists especially children. The caravan parks, which hold around 1,000 units, also cater for the tourer and a list of sites is available from the Council Offices, 2 Church Street, Newtownards.
