Sunset at Saltcoats Beach

Attraction Information

Love a good swim in the sea? Plan your next family day out at Saltcoats Beach in South Scotland and enjoy the water!

This wide, sandy beach is the perfect place to teach your tots to swim. It's shallow for hundreds of metres, so it's safe for swimming and paddling.

A lazy day at the beach is a firm family favourite - just unwind and enjoy the sun to the sound of kids playing and waves washing on the shore with a quiet “Woosh”. Want more fun? Have a picnic at the park near Saltcoats Beach or visit the ruins of Ardrossan Castle, which sit on a small hill by the beach.

  • 100s of meters of shallow water
  • Wide beach with plenty of spaces
  • See the ruins of Ardrossan Castle
