Crail Roome Bay
With a sandy upper beach and rock pools at the waters edge, there is lots of exploring to be done at Roome Bay. The Bay is south facing and combines a cove of sand and rock pools with natural peace and quiet. There is an old disussed swimming pool at one end of the beach that is now a haven for wildlife. The sloping grass area and childrens playground provide a lovely backdrop to the beach on the north side.
The coastline is part of the internationally recognised Firth of Forth Ramsar site to protect wetland habitats and the species which live and feed in these areas. It provides homes and feeding grounds for a whole host of wild birds and animals.
Crail is on the Fife coastal driving route. Access to beach is off Roome Bay Crescent. The beach is about 10 minutes walk from the centre of Crail. The beach has won Fife's 2012 Seaside Award. For further information go to: www.keepscotlandbeautiful.org/coastal
