Overview

  • Campsites next to or within walking distance of a beach

    Top site for beaches

On Scotland's sunshine coast, to the east of the country's capital, Edinburgh.

Our peaceful Dunbar Club campsite is just a stone’s throw from the popular East Lothian seaside town of the same name and adjacent to Whitesands Bay - a long stretch of sandy surfing beach.

Spectacular landscapes surround the campsite, ensuring wherever you are pitched you have a stunning view. Seaward the impressive views extend over the Firth of Forth and Bass Rock – temporary nesting spot for 150,000 seabirds during peak season.

The campsite is well laid out and spacious with 90 pitches, some of which are hardstands. Modern facilities, including a wetsuit shower are available.

Dunbar, three miles from the campsite, offers shops, places to eat and more beaches. East beach, minutes from the town centre is great for bathing, paddle boarding and sea kayaking.

Inland other attractions include East Links Family Park with animals and a narrow gauge railway; the Museum of Flight at East Fortune and the Scottish Seabird Centre in North Berwick, where you can see puffins, seal pups and dolphins.

Worth Noting

Most pitches have sea views and there is a large picnic area overlooking the coast. There is a large Sunday market/car boot sale every week at East Fortune ten miles from the site.

WiFi

The WiFi service is excellent throughout the campsite. Prices.

Eat Local

Belhaven Fruit Farm is four miles from site, and Dunbar High Street consists of almost entirely independent shops including numerous cafés, an organic greengrocer, community bakery, and a wet fish shop.

This review is for Dunbar

We stayed here recently, it was our first time with a tourer caravan. We were complete newbies ! Site was easily accessible & easy to locate. Lovely welcome by staff who couldn't be more helpful, they even helped pull our caravan onto its pitch. The site & facilities were immaculate, including showers & toilets. Lovely views & we were given a pitch overlooking the park area for our kids. Local supermarkets were within a few miles & the beach was only a few minutes drive away. ( It could be easily walked but too far for our old dog ) Loved it here & will Deffo return 👍🏻

I have full respect for the Dunbar setup - very well run and a really good mix-up - we were camped beside campervans and tents and it was great - usually if you are in a tent UR segregated - this site is well run and has a healthy attitude to campers which in all honesty was very refreshing. Our past experiences have been the opposite - we will definitely return - Oh and we met lots of great people also.

This review is for Dunbar

Site is in a good costal location within walking distance of Dunbar, either along the road or the edge of the golf course. Unfortunately there is no direct access to the beach and the nearest coastline is not sandy. Our pitch was elevated which meant it was a bit windy however wind breakers helped and the view more than made up for it. The site managers have tried to make the most of the facilities which are well kept if somewhat dated however on a busy weekend there was a four deep queue at one point for a shower! The site would also benefit from the addition of water service points, chemical and rubbish disposal points as depending on your pitch it was quite a walk to slop out or replenish. One fellow camper drove to the toilet block and back! All said we had a good relaxing weekend and enjoyed the walks, town and scenery.
