Beautiful sandy beach which I don’t think we expected to find. Would imagine it’s busy in the summer. Nice shops and coffee shops around for a quick pit stop.

The beach stretches from at least Elie long to Earlsferry and it is a superb long and sandy beach, which appeals especially to families with young children.
