East Sands, on the south side of the old harbour, is an ideal venue for a fun-filled family day out at the seaside. This beach is located close to the East Sands Leisure Centre. It is a sandy beach with a path on the inland side. Due to the close proximity to the harbour and sailing club, there are a lot of water sports.
As well as being connected to the Fife Coastal Path, the beach facilities include lifeguards and first aid (seasonal), toilets, childrenâ€™s play area, car parking and cafÃ©.
Beaches are dynamic environments which means they are constantly changing. This is especially true for East Sands where the sand on and offshore has a habit of changing rather suddenly. So donâ€™t always expect the beach to be where you left it!
East Sands are winners of a Keep Scotland Beautiful 2018 Beach Award.
East Sands toilets (opening times) won Gold in the National Loo of the Year Awards 2018.
