This beach is lovely and sandy and has a vast expanse of sand. Great place to set up camp for the day and relax. The little bridge to nowhere is an interesting feature.

A stunningly beautiful beach which is almost always deserted. Fantastic for fun and games with kids and dogs and if you fancy a bit of crabbing fill your boots - or your buckets!!

With the merciless wind howling off the sea today, this open beach was best viewed from with the car. It was still captivating, looking out to sea, an ever-changing scene. But we have been here in summer and enjoyed the seemingly endless sands. And summer...More

Great place to get out and about and run off some energy. Lots of space and lovely sand. It has wonderful views no matter what the weather.

To whom it may concern, Is it possible to set up a marquee on a grassy patch for 2 nights with access to Belhaven Beach in June? The occasion would would be a birthday party so ideally a semi isolated spot would be desirable rather than a designated camp site. Kind regards Silas
