Sandy beach between Ardrossan and Saltcoats in North Ayrshire with shallow water that is perfect for swimming and paddling as it is shallow for 100s of metres!


This is not a long beach and is sat beside the town, but it is sandy and is shallow for a long way out which makes it an ideal family and toddler beach as they splash around in safety. (BTW: there is no lifeguard service)

Being close to the town means that there are lots of good facilities available. There is disabled access and toilets
