Almost hidden behind the rock outcrop at Torness Point, this beautiful sandy beach runs south for about 400m, backed along its length of amazing dunes.
From here, you can take a stroll along the John Muir Link which runs from Dunbar to Cockburnspath where you can see many fascinating geological features along this route such as the sandstone arches and waterfall at Bilsdean.
It's popular for fishing, surfing and spotting wildlife!
