Whitesands is an attractive stretch of fine golden sand flanked on either side by rocky areas and low-rise cliffs. Barns Ness Lighthouse is just a few minutes walk away.
It's an ideal place for an early-morning swim or a walk amongst the dunes and grassland. Families can take part in the geology trail and enjoy coastal walks and wildlife spotting. If you visit at low tide you will find a series of rock pools where little ones will love seeing how many creatures they can spot!
