East Haven

The beach at East Haven is popular with families and dog walkers. This is a rural beach with a diverse range of sealife and tidal seaweed. The sandy bay is surrounded by rocks which are great for rockpooling during low tide. Although the beach is not a designated bathing area it is a popular area for children and adults to paddle in the bay during summer. Residents manage the community toilets from the end of March to October and have created a 'wee gallery' for visitors. Water quality is currently untested at East Haven

Getting there

East Haven is located on the east coast of Scotland between Arbroath and Carnoustie. Sustrans National Cycle Route 1 runs through the village and up the coast making it arguably, one of the most beautiful sections of the route. There is an hourly bus service Monday to Saturday (73A).

A public car park can be accessed by low bridge with 2m height restriction.
