Elie beach comprises the central section of a long, curved line of sand that runs from Earlsferry round to Elie Harbour. Backed by dunes and beach huts, the rich golden sand here is ideal for dinghy sailing, pleasure boating, windsurfing and the like. The beach is flat and the tide was half way in for this summer re-visit. Bright sunshine and a blue sky greeted the early visitors.
What the beach means to Graeme.
Summer on the beach at Elie.
This long sandy beach links the former royal burghs of Elie and Earlsferry. It features beach huts and sandy dunes that sit behind a wide expanse of sand at low tide. This is a popular swimming beach. The proximity of the village adds variety to any visit, with the wider attractions of Fife readily to hand. In addition, the beach lies on the Fife Coastal Path, inviting further exploration of the wider area.
