    Stunning beach and views.
    Perfect beach which we had entirely to ourselves. Walked to either end & visited the smallest harbour in the UK. This is quite hidden at the west end & can only be reached at low tide. Great views of Tantallon Castle from the seaward side, and also Bass Rock. Tempestuous seas and icy wind but was a great walk.

    Favourite East Lothian Beach
    This is a gorgeous private beach near the busier North Berwick. The views as you head from the grass covered car park to the beach as this opens up to show the Bass Rock make it worthwhile. I've been here a few times and often found myself the only person on the beach. The views to Tantallon from the beach are terrific; incredibly atmospheric.

    Quiet and otherworldly, amazing views
    Walked from Auldhame East Wing, so no £3 for parking (also, bus stop at Auldhame). Worth paying for a car, though, if you need to. Under developed, wild-ish, sands, rocks and s highly atmospheric approach.

    Great beach
    We were staying quite close so walked here after lunch and wow its worth it. Lots to walk around and explore - when the tide is out you can walk onto the rocks. Lovely views of Tantallon Castle and Bass Rock - feels very unspoilt You could literally take a picnic here and spend the whole day on the beach

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Just to update folks, this beach remains fantastic but the price to park is now £5.00 and you need to pay even if the barrier is up.
Unsure where the money is going as the road is atrocious with potholes big enough to hit the underside of the cars.

We traveled here on our motorhome we were allowed to park overnight at the far end of the beach there are no facilities here but what a location the views fantastic walked into the town visited the harbour the seabirds Center shops cafes we practically had the far beach to ourselves and we’re made very welcome by residents of the town who went out of their way to help
Even the ice cream seller in his six wheeled ice cream van we had home made ice cream lovely and he gave our two red setters ice cream on a wafer for free
If you want a holiday with lovely clean water and beaches and no slot machines just good clean family fun then I cannot recommend North Berwick any higher
The only thing that would have made it better would be a place to get fresh water and get rid of toilet waste

This is certainly worth a visit for people of all ages as there were families on the beach with picnic, surfers, dogs walkers, photographers and well as those out for a walk.

Interesting cliffs. In Poland, there are even higher cliffs, but as a rule they are rather chalky or sand. Here the dark, sticky earth meets the sea, giving an interesting effect.

Dangerous harbour! My dog - an excitable Springer, skidded and plunged into this harbour yesterday. Due to the high walls, it was impossible for him to get out, so I had to jump in after him as he was panicking and tiring. Thankfully managed to guide him round to the steps where my husband managed to help us out. Water can be 6m deep at high tide and it’s very cold. Traumatic experience, be careful, we feel very lucky.
