Belhaven Bay – Steeped in history
Belhaven Bay Caravan Park is situated within the John Muir Country Park and close to the beach and golf course.
We are privileged to be located within the John Muir Country Park, in fact the nearby town of Dunbar is the birthplace of the famous explorer, naturalist and founder of the National Parks movement in North America. The Country Park has a nature reserve complete with outdoor play park which is ideal for both families and the natural history enthusiast alike.
Adjacent, the lovely beach at Belhaven Bay has wide expanses of sand, great surfing and wonderful views across the Firth of Forth.

East Lothian's golf coast & countryside
East Lothian enjoys the sunniest climate in Scotland, and with its outstanding natural beauty and world class activities, it’s little wonder that it is one of the most sought after destinations, not just to visit but to live.
This lovely area boasts miles of stunning coastline, gorgeous beaches, award winning attractions and some of the world’s finest links golf courses – and all just a short distance from Scotland’s Capital.
Meadowhead Parks are understandably proud to have not just one, but two of our holiday parks located in the most iconic parts of this lovely corner of Scotland.
Exciting visitor attractions
Dunbar Leisure Pool is within walking distance of the park, this family pool has waves, flumes and slides for smaller children. You could also head down to the fishing harbour and see the ruins of Dunbar Castle or enjoy some rockpooling in the town’s sandy East Beach, just minutes from the broad High Street and its unique local shops and cafes.
For walkers, Dunbar provides the start or finish of the John Muir Way, a long distance walking route between the west coast of Scotland and East Lothian. The region is of course a golfer’s paradise and there are two golf courses in Dunbar and between our park and Belhaven Bay is the Glen Golf course where play can easily be arranged. For those looking for a little more exhilaration, Dunbar is also home to Foxlake Adventures, Scotland’s first wakeboarding cable tow park.

Families with Kids
This was the best we have stayed at this year. Very impressed with the toilet/showers etc. Staff were very helpful and pleasant, they were not too busy for a chat on site seemed as though they were interested in who you were and what you had to talk about which is good as it made you feel welcome and inviting to come back again.
Loved it! Great showering facility and kitchen area. Play park for kids was brilliant and so close to the beach. We will be back!
I love my weekends at Belhaven Bay, it’s beautiful, peaceful, ideal location and the staff are all very friendly and helpful. Keep up the good work.
The shower block at Belhaven was a delight – thoroughly clean and very welcoming.
I have stayed 3 times at the Tantallon site and tried the Dunbar one for a short break. Both are fantastic sites that I highly recommend to friends and family.
Enjoyed the area for walking – very peaceful. Bus stops at entrance to site and other facilities close by.
We will be back next August for the third year running as a family of 19 all very much enjoyed our stay and Belhaven Bay is by far the best!
An amazing holiday. Both ourselves and our children loved the wigwam experience.
Absolutely love it as I enjoy surfing and there’s so much to do rain hail or shine, we’ve been at least 9 times now, staying in static, campervan and wigwams. We have recommended it on so many occasions.
About my 4th time staying there and plan to return with a larger group in August. Fantastic location with beach on your doorstep and East links farm if weather is poor.
Enjoyed it very much. It was my first holiday as a single parent with a toddler and it was ideal. He had so much there to entertain him and we both enjoyed the scenery. He asks to go back to the wigwam most days!
I really enjoyed my stay, staff member Dianne was very helpful and assisting. I like that they also do nice fresh morning rolls in at reception. The park is very well maintained and I loved the upgrade on the shower blocks- the showers are great . Excellent location.
