Things to do at Lunan Bay Beach Review

When I asked where I should go whilst visiting Arbroath in Scotland, almost everyone said Lunan Bay. This stunning east-facing beach is backed by sand dunes and framed by low cliffs to the north and south.

It’s a pretty sandy beach and our kids had fun flying a kite, making sandcastles, finding ‘shrimp’ and playing in the water.

The beach is a popular destination for surfers and horse riders. Traditional fishing is still practiced here with nets strung on poles dug into the sand to trap fish in the receding tide. The beach is also a fantastic place to go bird watching with several fantastic species to spot.

The best access to the beach is found via the car park at its rear. It was free to park though hard to get a spot whilst we were visiting. Be warned it’s a pretty steep slope down to and up from the beach so maybe not one for those with any mobility issues. My mam struggled and we couldn’t find any access points.

We couldn’t see any food or drinks vendors on the beach so take your own picnic. There is a cafe set about a 5-minute walk back from the beach which is an option. It has free parking for guests for the first hour but is £5 per hour thereafter.
