The 36-year-old slipped while out walking on the stones, near the water, on Sunday morning.
Coastguard and Ambulance Service crews were called to the scene after the alarm was raised by a ranger at the Causeway, shortly after 8.40am.
They stretchered the woman away and brought her to hospital with a suspected fractured leg.
Coastguard crews said the rescue operation had been difficult, due to the closeness to the sea front, and urged anyone out walking to be very careful as the stones can be slippery.
