“Unexpected little gem of a beach! ”
Review of Seacliff Beach

We came for a day out to the beach on bank holiday Monday. We found this on google, we read about the £3 parking fee (due to being on farmers land) and was nearly put off going. But we decided to give it a try and we are so glad we did! We go to many beaches around Scotland and this has to be in my top three! It was fairly quiet, just other families with picnics and bbqs. We took everything we needed as there isn’t anything around other than toilets at the car park. The sand is soft and the sea is so clear and calm it’s brilliant for children. Not many rocks or shells just sandy beach and turquoise water. The views are wonderful of the ruin castle nearby, the famous cliff/rockery and bass rock and it’s lighthouse in front. Great for watching bird life, lots of gannets diving for fish. It’s very clean and peaceful. We will visit here again and again. Lovely rock pools, we found fish, starfish, crabs and even a lobster that I’m assuming the fishermen left behind as it was dead but great for the kids to see up and close. Lots of people swimming, paddling, little boats and kayaks. A brilliant day out - easy to find with satnav - well posted.

Visited Seacliff Beach at the weekend. Most wonderful beach, scenery beautiful. Road to beach needs the holes repaired also the toilets need cleaning.

greedy farm owner charges to enter his land towards the beach which is a shame that people are permitted to own land to a beach

Golf North Berwick. If I were only allowed to play one course for the rest of my life. I would be happy if this was the course. It would always play different and the vista is breath taking.

Just spent the day today. However this is our 2nd time visiting this beach. It's £3 to take the car all the way down to the beach. Along a track style road. But worth it down there. White sands very spacious and fantastic views of bass rock and tantallon castle. Be careful though tide comes in fast as we found today on the rocks. But you won't get stranded if you keep to the beach
