[Milsey Bay at high tide]

Any seaside resort worth its salt needs to have a decent beach. North Berwick has two, both of which have been attracting tourists since Victorian times. Milsey Bay lies immediately east of the town harbour and stretches for a mile towards one of the area's many golf clubs. It's our favourite of the two beaches, with a reasonable width of sand above the high water mark, safe boating pond, superb views of Bass Rock and rock pools at low water. West Beach faces the island and fragile puffin colony of Craigleith, and merges with quieter Broad Sands at its west end - making three miles of sand on this side of the harbour. On busy days, head to the extremity of either beach to find a parking space.
