There can’t be many town centres with an award-winning, two-mile-long beach on their doorstep. St Andrews West Sands is a stunning expanse of uninterrupted beach stretching from St Andrews along the edge of the legendary Old Course to the Eden Estuary.

Very popular with walkers, runners and swimmers, this stunning beach is also used for land yachting, surfing and paddleboarding. In addition, to ensure as many people as possible enjoy the West Sands, beach-friendly wheelchairs are available free of charge during the summer season.

And for movie buffs… St Andrews West Sands appears in the opening scenes of the classic film, Chariots Of Fire.
