Saw the beach during a hot sunny spell.... magic - could have been anywhere in Europe. Some picnic benches to sit and take in the view.

This is an un spoilt part of the world and the beach is beautiful what ever the weather. Walk, collect shells, surf or just breathe in the sea air and admire the views.

Beautiful big beach was spectacular and we thoroughly enjoyed walking/running around on it. Plenty of parking and an incredible beach to wander around, definitely somewhere to go on a trip to Dunbar!

I have lived next to this beach for 20 years and walk it regularly. It is beautiful at all times of year. Lots of wildlife too with various species of ducks, sanderlings and oystercatchers in winter. Grey herons and terns in summer. Access is from the West Barns end next to the family park or via the bridge at the... More

A great beach once the tide has gone out a bit and you have discovered the usr of the bridge ti nowhere! There is plenty of parking but I would assume this gets busy in the summer.

The Belhaven beack is one of the most picturesque in East lothian with Bass rock in the background. Many surfers use this beach during the summer. Plenty of sand for the kids and excellent for dog walking. The tide comes in quickly so you need to check beforehand.

Only a few yards from home. Always different..sea..light...waves. Watch out for the strong current.. The Bridge to Nowhere (covered by water when the tide is in) is a Dunbar attraction. Make sure that this attraction remains free by standing up to ELC plan to introdduce coastal car parking charges.
