Coastal Car Parks


If you are planning a visit to one of East Lothian's popular beaches or coastal sites, there is an excellent choice of coastal parks, many of which also have public toilet facilities.

Most car parks along our coast are subject to traffic regulations orders and require users to pay a charge to support the ongoing maintenance of facilities and management. 

Parking Costs 

Parking costs just £2 per day and you can use your ticket to visit any of the coastal car parks throughout the day. Tickets can either be purchased from the on-site "pay and display" ticket machines or with cashless payments using RingGo.

Apply for an Annual Permit 

If you are a regular visitor to East Lothian's beaches, you may wish to apply for or renew an annual parking season ticket which costs £40. (When applying please select Coastal Car Parking)

apply / renew

If you cannot pay online, applications can be made by contacting parking (details on the left).

Please be aware that parking enforcement is undertaken in East Lothian's coastal car parks so if you don't clearly display a valid parking ticket on your vehicle, you could receive a penalty charge of £60.

Blue Badge holders will not be required to pay parking charges.
