It's a great place to have a little walk, especially on a sunny day. Also, place provides you with awarded amenities - we found Silver Loo of the Year 2019, so you don't have to worry about anything.

Very nice beach with great view across the Firth of Forth to the Bass Rock. Lots of birds: Sandwich terns, gulls, oystercatchers, curlews, redshanks, eider ducks and others. Dogs are allowed.

Lots of things to do here including paid motor-boat adventures, free beach activities and a great little pub that looks out over the beach. It was low tide and quite accessible when we visited, not sure how friendly the beach would be at high tide.

After doing the Elie chain walk the beach was a great place to chill. Sandy beach and it was surprisingly empty. Definitely worth a visit if you are in the area

Elie Beach is great for both bathing and walking. Lots of water based activities are available along by the harbour.

The day was cloudy but the beach was great. Love long walks on beaches and this one is perfect. The beach was wide open and the walking was easy and fun. The beach was clean and very natural.

I think the no59 runs along all the coastal villages. It will not go through Earlsferry but will go through Elie.
