Coldingham Bay is an east north easterly facing beach break, which enables it to work from large north westerly swells, medium to large north easterly swells to easterly swells right round to a south easterly. This means it will pick up most of the swells going around the Scottish east coast and is offshore with any westerly winds. It works on all tide states, but as the sand bar is constantly moving as large swells hit the bay, you cannot always say which state of tide will work best.
Coldingham Bay is a lifeguarded beach through the summer months so perfect for families. There is a cafe and toilets located on the beach, as well as free parking, a hotel and surf shop just a minutes walk away. There are costal paths both north and south from the bay with plenty of stunning scenery.
