Beach Awards

Scotland's Beach Awards are the benchmark for quality beaches which are well managed and enjoyed by people across Scotland.

Scotland's Beach Awards celebrate clean, well managed and sustainable beaches. Awarded beaches demonstrate excellent beach management and environmental best practice, ensuring the maintenance of high standards. The award recognises excellence in beach management, access and facilities, cleanliness, safety and further enhances community engagement to reflect the needs of beach users.

Please see our Beach Guide for award winning beaches. 

We are now closed for applications for 2017, and will be announcing the awarded beaches in May. We will open for 2018 applications in January next year.
