Had a wander along here late afternoon with my wife today. Although the views are quite scenic the actual beach itself is very small, stretching in distance for less than 1/10th mile. It is situated directly in front of the golf course and a little way short of a play park. In our opinion it is okay and perhaps worth... More

My friends got married on this beach. Hottest day of the year 25C! Stunning golden sands, rocks and blue clear water. Looked more like the Med! Stunning

Lovely beach with lots of rocks to climb on and a nice spread of sand. Right on the coast path as well. Lovely views across the Firth of Forth too.

This little used beach away from the attractions of Anstruther is ideal for letting the kids run wild with a sandy stretch and rock pools further round its ideal for a picnic or walking the dog and letting the wind blow through your hair which unfortunately passes me by as I am more streamlined than most well worth a look

Just a lovely little beach that is sheltered and very close to where I live. It is a lovely place to go and sit winter or summer and OK for a swim on the better days!

This is a lovely little beach, my grandkids love rock pooling here, next to the small golf course and away from the main small town of Anstruther.

small beach area,but was perfect for family picnic.... kids have enough room to run wild but not far enough for you to loose them.

Billow Ness Beach is a bit of sand beside Anstruther Wester harbor that some people are rarely seen sitting on and that as few locals use for the stepping stones across the Dreel River as a short cut from the road, at times of low tide when the sea is out. This is less of a beach than a bit... More
