Prestwick Beach

Prestwick beach is a long sandy beach with views over to Isle of Arran. The beach extends out of Prestwick and is then backed by Prestwick Golf Club, birthplace of the Open Championship.

If walking northwards along the beach it is possible to paddle across the Pow burn at low-tide to Troon South Sands.

Prestwick Beach has been awarded a regional Seaside Award.
