Very near Beaumont lodge where we stayed, a lovely little beach we had it virtually to ourselves. Lovely to sit and read a book listening to the water. Public toilets close by.

I've walked this lovely little beach several times when visited friends in Anstruther. A bracing wind in February was probably one of my lease favourite visits, but it is pretty sheltered & glorious when the sun sneaks out from behind a cloud.

Not much in the way of amenities, but more than makes up for that in natural beauty. This is a great little beach, which we had to ourselves in early October. I'm sure it would be more busy on a hot Summer day. We didn't try the water, but I assume it would be pretty cold.

The East Neuk of Fife is famous for it's long streaches of golden sandy beaches, this is one of the best. The beach has a shallow increment so very safe to swim in, it's clean and there are fantastic caves to explore. Take a picnic and make a day of it! Please do take all your rubbish home with you,...

Clean sand, no overcrowding, freezing cold water lol! Great rock pools and a great putting green nearby. A little hidden gem.
