Ayrshire and Isle of Arran boasts over 80 miles of coastline, from huge stretches of sand to jagged cliff tops. It’s no wonder that families, couples and groups of friends flock to this beautiful southerly part of Scotland to take advantage of its beaches. Even when the sun is hiding away, there are plenty of activities to keep guests entertained. Expedia helps to find the perfect beach hotels using the handy search tool.
Ayr Beach is a great spot for summer months as it is mostly sand, with nearby grass for picnics and ball sports. Parents will find that there is plenty of activities for children as nearby there is a crazy golf course and a kids entertainment centre. Cyclists will enjoy the National Cycle Route 7 here and keen fishers can take a boat trip out to the harbour.
Troon Beach is another sandy haven, complete with spectacular views of the Isle of Arran in the Firth of Clyde. There are opportunities for yachting, exploring beautifully kept gardens, and eating freshly caught fish at chippies on the seafront.
Maidens beach offers views of the Mull of Kintyre and is conveniently situated near Culzean Country Park and Turnberry Golf Club. Guests here can trek the sands on pony back, or up the adrenaline factor with some watersports.
