We often go and sit down at belhaven beach, the view across to the bass rock is amazing, watching the surfers, people out walking. The subsets at night are just fabulous and all this right on our front door step.

Have used this beach for years, walking the dogs. Magnificent views and wonderful wildlife. It is a fine opportunity to show people the attractions of East Lothian at a glance.
