St Andrews West Sands

Park your car at the huge car park near the Old Course or walk from the town centre past the Old Course and you’ll find this amazing stretch of beach. Two miles of sandy beach and sand dunes used by locals and visitors regularly for walking, running, playing, sand yachting, kite flying, horse riding, polo, volleyball and swimming. This is the beach used in the famous scene in Chariots of Fire. A great place for a family day out, especially as it’s so close to the town where you can find cafes, shops, restaurants or visit a museum, castle or cathedral.
