Dunbar East

Dunbar East beach can be a sandy beach, a rocky beach, or a bit of both, as it is quickly affected by either the building or erosive power of the sea. Rockpools are a feature enjoyed by many. It is actively managed by East Lothian Council in partnership with the Dunbar Shore and Harbour Neighbourhood Improvement Group.

The access to the beach is via a steep ramp or access steps. Regular community litter clean ups and events take place on the beach.

Getting there

There are rail and bus links to the centre of Dunbar. The beach runs parallel to the High Street. Sustrans NCN 76 also runs close to the beach.
