Fairlie is a long sandy beach, with some shingle and rocks on the foreshore. At the southern end is a private pier and out to sea are views to Great and Little Cumbrae Islands, as well as to the Isle of Arran. This is a favourite yachting venue and there is a slipway for dinghies. Fairlie is a quiet town, although it has a pub and a gift shop, plus a petrol station.
