Beaches

A few of our favourites in the fife area must be: -

  • St Andrews itself it is not only clean with good water quality for swimming, but you also have the option to visit the aquarium or take a short walk into the town and visit Jannettas Ice cream shop for a treat. If you enjoy a more adventurous day at the beach, they do offer beach activities on the west sands beach.  
  • Kingsbarn beach on the outskirts of St Andrews is another excellent stop, and you can park overnight here too so why not park up and enjoy a BBQ and watch the sunset.  
  • Burntisland beach has a more tourist seaside feel, with their annual summer funfair and bouncy castles, crazy golf and playpark this is a great stop to visit with the kids.
