 Fantastic site. We booked this site in advance and got a shore pitch. On arrival we were given a friendly welcome and guided to our pitch, which was right on the waterfront with fantastic panoramic views.

The pitch was very large hardstanding and level. The toilet block in this section are some of the best we've seen resembling train carriages, all self contained and immaculate, so no queuing needed. We saw dolphins on the second day.

The site has The Bootleggers Bistro a very quirky cafe in a Routmaster Double Decker bus but this was currently closed, There was still selling takaway food and they had a bar in an old Citreon van. Nearby the village of Hopeman has 2 Small convenience stores a lovely cafe and a couple of pubs.

The area is great for walking as it's on the Moray coastal path. You can walk to Lossiemouth or Burghead, where there are great forest trails. Nearby is the City of Elgin where there are all the large supermarkets and a great deal of shops and cafes and bars.

I recommend Batchen Street for trendy Cafes and shops. There is a good bus service to Elgin and Lossiemouth.

A lovely site and we will return.

 Good safe site for the kids to play on their bikes.

Right next to a lovely sandy beach which is great for the family.

Very clean facilities with sanitisers at each toilet door.

 Lovely site with pitches right on the seafront.

It can be noisy however with the Bootleggers restaurant being behind the pitches. The food from there was nice but expensive.

We were lucky with the weather and enjoyed walks into Burghead.

 Can't fault the static caravans - modern, tidy, lots of facilities and I think all face the beach.

I would give it 10 out of 10 for the static but I've been visiting the site over the last 5 or 6 years touring with tent.

I get the impression the owners are taking the site more upmarket and were moving to discourage campers (their tent prices were higher than those for equivalent sized caravans) Apparently this was because tents make a mess of the grass.

They've also brought in a 5m limit for tents (which was shame as my long thin tent was 5. 1m). As my large tent was no longer welcome - I resorted to hiring a static.

Nice sheltered beach, rock pools for the kids to discover. Chippy and ice cream shop about 500 yards away.

For touring caravans and motorhomes this is a good site - pricey though

 We stayed at the far end of the site in a bit called the Shore. On arrival, you may think that this is a static only site but its not true.

At the Shore there is not a static in sight, there are a number of different types of pitches, the ones at the front are premium with loads if space. We were in the pitches just behind. We had our own water supply, drain, and electric.

The facilities were just lovely. Kept clean and well maintained. You can tell there has been a lot of investment in this part of the park. Did not use the camper kitchen but it looked good. Lovely walks to the harbour and beyond. The weather was a bit wild when we were up so did not venture far on foot.

There are statues of Laurel and Hardey peering over a hedge at you, scared the bejesus out of me when I first saw them.

If there was one tiny fault it would be that the pitch was on the small side. Other than that the site is great.

 I am not normally one to leave reviews, but we had such amazing service from the staff at West Beach last week that we felt we should.

We pitched up in the sheltered coal yard, a stones throw from the beach and beautifully sheltered by the walls. Close to the free hot showers and lovely and flat for the tent.

The site was as described by others, lots of statics, but we were very happy, the pitch was big enough for our tent and windbreak with no dramas.

After our first night lots of others departed, leaving us almost alone, and when we returned from a blustery day out up the coast out tent had taken a bit of a battering! However, the staff had tied extra guy ropes on for us, rolled up the wind break and even moved their van to shelter us from the worst of the wind! Absolutely above and beyond, and could not have asked for more.

We were unfortunately too late in the season to see dolphins, but would return for definite. The site was everything you needed it to be, reasonably priced and the walks from the site were lovely.

Well done - and thank you West Beach!

 On arrival, all you will see is rows of static caravans. The tent area feels rather squeezed in at the back as an after thought. Pitch space is limited and it would be cramped if busy.

The pricing structure seemed fluid and increased during our stay, depending on who was manning the office. The facilities are clean and showers free, despite coin boxes fitted? Since, during our stay, we were buffetted by 40mph southerly winds, the sheltered position proved to be a bonus!

Hopeman is a fantastic little village with a shop, chemist, butcher, take-away and several pubs. There is a good, level footpath to Burghead along the old railway line.

The walk East to Lossiemouth is more challenging. Lovely views across the Moray Firth, with dolphin fins regularly breaking the surface. A fantastic location for exploring the area. We recommend the Cullin Bay Hotel for their 2015 award winning Skink.

This campsite grew on us over the 4 nights we stayed so don't be put off by initial impressions. The location is worth it.
