A hidden gem of Anstruther. Always lovely and quiet and clean perfect sand for making sandcastles too. Nice place for a wee seat when walking the coastal path.

Lovely beach with lots of rocks to climb on and a nice spread of sand. Right on the coast path as well. Lovely views across the Firth of Forth too.
