Should you wish to find out more about St Andrews East Sands Beach, please contact Robbie Blyth, Beach & Coastal Officer.
This beach is located on the south side of the old harbour close to the East Sands Leisure Centre. It is a sandy beach with a path on the inland side. It's close to the harbour and sailing club, so there are a lot of water sports.
The beach is also connected to the Fife Coastal Path. Beaches are dynamic environments which means they are constantly changing. This is especially true for East Sands where the sand on and offshore has a habit of changing rather suddenly.
