World class attractions

The beauty about a break in East Lothian, is that there is just so much to do here.

The area boasts an abundance of world class visitor attractions. Whether you are on holiday with the kids, enjoying a getaway with friends or are just looking for a relaxing break together, there is something for everyone to enjoy.

Marvel at the world’s largest colony of gannets on the Bass Rock from the 5 star Seabird Centre or get up close to nature with a superb boat trip out on the Firth of Forth to the Rock and the iconic Forth Bridges. Enjoy a wonderful day out at East Links Family Park and explore the great outdoors in the John Muir Country Park, enjoy a supersonic experience at the National Museum of Flight and step back in time with a visit to the historic castles of Tantallon, Dirleton and Dunbar.

In an area famous for golf, there are too many courses to name! and for those looking for something a little more energetic, you could try some surfing lessons or visit Foxlake Adventures, Scotland’s first wakeboarding cable tow park. We recommend a day at the races at Musselburgh and don’t miss a visit and a wee dram at Glenkinchie Distillery.

Whatever time of year that you visit, there is something for everyone to enjoy in this special corner of Scotland.

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.

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.

Loved it! Great showering facility and kitchen area. Play park for kids was brilliant and so close to the beach. We will be back!

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!

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.

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.

Enjoyed the area for walking – very peaceful. Bus stops at entrance to site and other facilities close by.

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!

We love this park!! The staff are so friendly and helpful and it is so laid back!! I particularly like the fact that it is not rule bound like so many others. We will be back as soon as finances allow!

Excellent break and very much exceeded our expectations. Excellent facilities and setting.

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.
