North Berwick West Beach

North Berwick West Beach has a long stretch of sand with views to the island of Craigleith and the Bass Rock. It is a popular family beach providing an ideal location for sunbathing, bird watching, paddling, picnics and dog walking. Behind the beach is a putting green that is open during the summer months. It is close to the Lifeboat shed and also within walking distance of the Scottish Seabird Centre.
