Crail Roome Bay Beach is made up of a sandy upper beach and rock pools at the waters edge. The Bay is south facing and combines a cove of sand and rock pools, with natural peace and quiet. There is an old disused 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, an international convention designed to protect wetland habitats and the species which live and feed in those areas. It provides homes and feeding grounds for a whole host of wild birds and animals.
Crail is on the Fife Coastal Driving Route. and access to beach can be found off Roome Bay Crescent in Crail. The beach is about 10 minutes walk from the centre of the village.
The Crail Roome Bay beach are winners of a Keep Scotland Beautiful 2018 Beach Award.
