“Lovely walk along this beach”

St Andrews West Sands Beach

Attraction details
Reviewed October 19, 2018

A very busy beach even in October. However it is so big that there is plenty of space for everyone - dog walkers, children playing, even horse riders. We had a lovely walk along the beach and then just a short stroll into town. Need to pay for parking and toilets.

This is a long and sandy beach which is justifiably very popular with all ages, families and dog walkers.

Take a walk along the beach when you have time between rounds. Very scenic and a quick walk from town and the Old Course first tee.

It is some years since we had been to this beach and we were disapponted to see how much it has gone downhill.

Fences have been put up along both edges of the dunes rresticting access to a few dwsignated paths and preventing access to the dunes where you could once relax out of ther wind.
The grass seems to have extended seawards and at high tide there is little sand between the grass and the sea.

Brilliant beach, have visited many times with our old dog & now with our year old puppy. Both of them would have given it a thumbs up if they had thumbs.
