Longniddry Bents

Longniddry Bents is a long beach with a mixture of sand and rocks. The combination of coastline and its location in the Forth makes this a popular area for all watersport enthusiasts, particularly kite-surfers, canoeists and windsurfers. As it is close to nature reserves, there are lots of birds to be seen feeding when the tide is out. The coastal grassland is a great spot for wildflowers.

If you're feeling peckish you can pick up some tasty street food at the car parks of bents no.1 and 3.
