Our family completed and solved the St Andrews East Sands Treasure Trail today which took us along this way twice. The weather was really good today and we took time out to have ice-cream and sit watching the boats on the water, the scenery around and enjoyed time relaxing as a family.

Well maintained, working harbour with fresh breezes off the sea! A great walk along the shore and views over harbour and the Castle.

Lovely stroll along the jetty to the end and up the rusty ladder for a sea view across to Carnoustie. Not a health and safety sign in sight. Fantastic.

This working harbour is tidal, when the tide is in the fishing boats can come and go.
It is full of character, with small local fishing boats and many lobster pots , we watched a small fishing boat berth and saw the lobsters and crabs being unloaded. It is full of character and not far from the town centre

Not the bonniest of harbours but a wee working harbour for local fishermen and lobster fisherman.
Worth walking down to look at though as walking out to the point gives you great views to the west and east.
Nice wee cafe as you walk towards the east sands.

If you are expecting the same quaint little harbour like you get in the East Neuk then you will be a bit dissapointed, this small harbour has a few lobster boats and a few pleasure boats moored up. However there are free public toilets at the bottom of the Pends, a bridge to get over to a great beach area on the East Sands, great photo opportunities of the Castle and Abbey from the end of the pier and there is a great wee portacabin cafe which has a great selection of cafe food,(including lobster if you so desire) to sit in or to go and a variety of beach toys to purchase. All parking in the harbour area is free.

Came down for a stroll in the sun one afternoon. It was fabulous to see all the crabbing lines out with the buckets. Some big crabs as well.
Walked down the quayside and then onto the beach. It was bracing in the wind but really lovely and loads of people out and about.
Well worth a wander down.

St Andrews was once a bustling port city and this was a busy harbor. Walk to the end of the pier along the lower level, climb the iron ladder at the pier's end, and then walk back along the upper level. Be careful!

Although not the busiest or prettiest of harbours, the one in St Andrews is nice enough and worth a visit. It’s a short stroll down from the cathedral and if you are lucky you might see some of the working boats land their catch.

Other than that, you can stroll along the harbour wall or cross the wee bridge to the pretty grassy area above East Sands beach.

And there’s a good cafe as well!
