My boyfriend and I went for a walk here today and took some nice photos. Really spectacular views. We timed it right - just for sunset which was lovely. It was very very quiet - we only saw one other person taking photos and a lady and her dog. Very peaceful.

Seacliff Beach, just southeast of North Berwick and down the coast from Tantallon Castle, is a real beauty. Gorgeous sands, calm water, rocks to safely climb. You can get great views of the castle. Never crowded because not many people know if it. Privately owned land leads to the beach, so there's a £3 entry, but it's more than worth... More

Was recommended to visit Seacliffe and was not disappointed. A beautiful beach, quietly situated so not busy. £3 to take your car there but about a mile walk if you park at the entrance, not sure if parking is allowed there, but we did. Don't forget to walk to the rocks on the left for a surprise sight of the... More

Fantastic beach to spend an afternoon. There aren't a lot of people around so it's quiet and enjoyable. There are cliffs to climb to get a better view and a while section of the beach is made of colorful rocks.

Seacliff is simply a wonderful beach. We went horseback riding along the shore and it is delightful. It is never crowded and always a relaxing place to visit. You can pay to park there or if you are willing to walk a short bit it is free. How can you beat that?
