“Long stretch of soft sand”

We went in May, had good weather and were in walking distance of this great beach. Having recently adopted a rescue dog and seeing so many restrictions in public places, it was a pleasure to see so many families with dogs being able to enjoy the beach and sea together. Easy access from prom to flat sandy beach. Great.

No visit to Edinburgh is complete without a trip to Portobello Beach. It is 15-20 minutes by bus (number 15) from the city centre [ask the driver for Joppa], and the entire length of both the beach and the promenade are dog-friendly year-round.

This is the place to go to blow away the 'cobwebs' get yourself a fish supper, then walk along the beach and back :)

Liked the fact that there were no hills or brays, just a lovely flat stroll along the beach, with great views, 5 mins from shops.

I love going down to Portobello Beach when it's nice outside. There is a great fish and chip place down there and you can buy yourself a drink of choice from a local off licence to bring down to have with your fish and chips!
There are also arcades with fun games for big and little kids alike.
The promenade makes for a nice stroll and the beach itself is lovely! It's a shame that it's not a bit warmer in Scotland!
