To the south of the town of Annan, there is a large salt marsh at the mouth of the channel of the Rivers Esk and Eden, which acts as a haven for wildlife, particularly bird life. West of the mouth of the River Annan, a shingle beach runs along to Powfoot, offering visitors a good chance to stretch the legs whilst enjoying views over the marsh and its wildlife. This rural beach is backed mostly by fields.
Parking is available along the end of the country road leading on from Waterfoot Road in Annan. To the west of the River Annan, south of the Hamlet of Newbie, further parking with direct access to the shingle beach can be found.
The town of Annan has a railway station with direct services to Carlisle and Glasgow. It also offers many shops, restaurants, places to stay, and a museum.
The 53-mile-long Annandale Way walking route passes through the town.
