The sea around St. Abbs with its crystal clear water is a well-known scuba diving area. The adjacent headland with its towering cliffs is a noted National Trust Nature Reserve boasting a wide variety of bird life. The glorious sandy beach at Coldingham Bay recently awarded a Blue Flag is only five minutes walk along the cliff top path.
Previously known as Coldingham Shore and now shortened to The Shore, the village was founded as a fishing community and its success has in the past, but less today, been dependent on that industry. Always popular with visitors coming to enjoy the sea, coastal views and quieter pace of life.
