Lovely, lovely beach. Quite deserted at times. Amazing geology and seabirds. Wonderful for a long walk at low tide.

This beach is lovely. Lots of sand. Flat so ideal for the kids to play on and in the sea. Nice dunes to walk along.

Short walk from a pay carpark to a lovely crescent beach with awesome dunes and great rock pools for the kids. Water clear but VERY cold. On a lovely day as good as any beach (unless you want to swim).

A beautiful sandy beach. Quiet, not many people, dogs allowed and very welcome. Very clean. Even the public toilets were very clean :) Very handy on the way to North Berwick. A car park just next to the beach.

Good beach with fantastic views. It is worth visiting Yellowcraigs & the beach there especially when the tide is out.

I feel a tad reluctant to write this as I feel like it's secret little beach and not mobbed. This is now my favourite place to go with baby and dog. However it is a little trek from the car park to the beach so don't over pack unless you're prepared for the wee hike.

The beach was lovely, even on a somewhat cloudy and sporadically rainy day! Parking in town with a walk through the town proved to be very easy, with access to the public toilet as well as delightful lunch at the Old Clubhouse Restaurant
