Stevenston Beach

Stevenston Beach - Strathclyde
© wfmillar and licensed for reuse under this Licence

Stevenston is a sandy beach curving gently round a bay between Irvine and Saltcoats.  The beach is backed by low, grassy dunes and lies in an area which has been designated as a Local Nature Reserve. 

The dunes here provide a habitat to a variety of bird and plant life. Also look out for wild flowers in the dunes during the summer months. Fenced footpaths lead down to the beach to limit erosion to the dune system.

From the beach there are striking views across the Firth of Forth towards the Isle of Arran.

A good range of amenities can be found in Saltcoats, which is within walking distance of the beach.
