Longniddry Gosford Bay

This long sandy and rocky beach is accessed easily from the road (A198) and car parks. It is close to a nature reserve and there are a lot of birds to be seen feeding when the tide is out. It is a great beach for blustery walks, horse rides and dog exercising during the winter as well as family visits in the summer. The beach is also popular with kite surfers and windsurfers. Excellent sandwiches and cakes are available in the nearby village of Longniddry.

Getting there

Access is off the main East Lothian coastal trail route. The beach is well sign posted. There is disabled access and free car parking (charge applies).
