This stretch of coastline has species-rich grassland, salt marsh and coastal scrub where rare grassland and wetland plants grow, including purple milk vetch and northern marsh orchid. The scrub provides nesting sites for whitethroats, stonechats and linnets.
Seabirds, such as shag, eider, cormorant and guillemot can be seen and dolphins may be spotted offshore.
The Fife Coastal Path runs through this reserve.
