Like neighbouring Annan, Powfoot beach is better known for its natural beauty, with saltmarsh and shingle predominating, than for sand. The adjacent town of Powfoot is attractive and welcoming, with facilities for the visitor. The west end of the beach is the best bet at low tide, in front of Powfoot Scar, where there is parking. There’s also a slipway here for dinghies and a golf course behind the beach. I recommend this beach and coastline for a good walk, which gives you the opportunity to enjoy particularly the indigenous and visiting bird life.
