The sheltered sandy beach of Coldingham Sands stretches for a kilometre within the bay with rocky shore at either end. It is located within the St Abbs and Eyemouth Voluntary Marine Reserve and hermit crabs can be seen in the rock pools. A perfect place to observe wildlife, with glorious coastal walks. Coastal grassland on the beach supports flowers such as restharrow and butterflies such as the small copper. Nearby is St Abbs village and harbour and St Abbs Head nature reserve, home to thousands of cliff nesting birds. Lifeguards patrol the beach during the peak summer season.
