Found at the lovely little coastal village of Maidens, this long sandy beach with grassy foreshore is a wonderful place to sit back, relax and take in the breathtaking scenery which includes views of the Ailsa Craig, and on a clear day, the Mull of Kintyre. Stroll along the beach, heading North to uncover the pathway leading into Culzean county park. Head South and you will find the charming harbour originally used for fishing, it is now used mostly for recreational boats. Facilities at Maidens beach include car parking, two caravan parks, a children's play area and a small shop with a cafe.
