Nestled on the coast in the North East of Scotland is East Haven Beach. East Haven is a tiny little fishing village off the A92 in Angus between Carnoustie and Arbroath. It’s a real hidden gem!

The beach is unspoiled, a mix between stretches of golden sands and rock pools to explore at low tide make this the perfect place to spend an afternoon with the family.

Parking is available for free and public toilets which are maintained by the local community are immaculate. There are picnic tables and benches available but please be respectful of the work the local community have put in to maintaining this area and dispose of your rubbish properly in the bins provided.

You can take a wander through the winding paths in the village and find lots of decorative treasures. The world War 1 memorial is particularly impressive with its sandbag detailing around the side. Info boards will tell you more about the area and the treasure you might find.

If you don’t drive the The North East Coast is part of the National cycle route and you can access East Haven by bike or just enjoy walking between villages up and down the North East Coast.

The award winning community gardens have been carefully maintained by local residents making the most beautiful space for a picnic. Many of the houses in East Haven also have incredible gardens and it’s worth a walk around to admire some of the local efforts that have been made.
