Seton Sands


A windswept sandy beach just off the main road (B1348) to the South East of Edinburgh and downstream from Cockenzie power station. Popular with walkers (and their dogs), canoeists, equestrians, and windsurfers - on account of the strong winds and its relatively clean waters. The beach is consistently recommended by the Marine Conservation Society (MCS) for its water quality.

Longniddry train station is a little over a kilometre from Seton Sands beach.
