Very pleasant beach with a lovely viewing platform overlooking the bay - although it is up a steep slope. No toilets though. It is forbidden to stay overnight in the carpark, although there is a campsite adjacent. Nice-looking cafe there too

Lunan Bay is a superb beach suitable for all. These sands are probably the cleanest and most beautiful on the NE coast narrowly pipping Easthaven near Carnoustie. Beautiful sands, beautiful setting, easy access, good parking, diner near by for refreshments, very clean sea water, mixture...More
