Billow Ness beach is set in a small, sandy bay located just to the west of Anstruther Harbour.

The beach itself is made up of golden sand and has an abundance of rock pools that are perfect for exploring. As a recent recipient of a Seaside Award from Tidy Britain you can rest assured the beach here is clean and the water quality excellent.

Billow Ness Beach is a good spot for those who like wildlife as well as walkers. It is situated on the Fife Coastal Path and makes a great place to stop off if you are hiking along this route.

The beach is close to the Anstruther Golf Club and you will find parking and toilets close by.

    Great wee beach for rockpooling!

    Aug 11th 2019

    Great wee beach for rockpooling! We spent hours catching crabs and fish in the tidal rockpools, exploring the beach, making sand sculptures, skimming stones and jumping in the waves.

    What did we get wrong?
